Within the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences, research provides an evidence-based foundation for the education of the next generation of thought leaders and healthcare professionals.
The College of Health Sciences is also a place where partnerships play a key role in promoting health research and education. High-quality undergraduate and graduate programs, research seed grant programs, and clinical research projects enable us to provide our students with rich classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences.
Our many programs and six departments encompass a broad and dynamic collection of specialties. In each of our programs we create an experience that shapes changes in practice based on scientific evidence. Our approach is to translate our strong platform in interdisciplinary science into health practices, therapies and interventions that result in immediate improvements in people’s lives.
Our students receive early immersion into practice settings and our faculty’s world-class research programs. As a result, our graduates are well prepared to pursue careers in various health professions, as well as to continue their education in one of the medical fields or enter a field of graduate study to pursue scientific investigation. Our ultimate goal is to help our students excel in their chosen profession in the arena of health.
The school was established in 1961 and became one of the nation’s first university centers focused on the challenges of urban America.

The school employs the “Delaware model,” which combines excellence in the classroom with a focus on substantive real-world experiential learning. Our faculty, staff and students work directly with the diverse communities we serve, learn from them as we apply our knowledge and research to their challenges, and constantly refine our solutions to form a bridge between the community of ideas and the community of action.
Consistent with our founding principles, all of our programs are distinctively interdisciplinary and applied. The challenges of our times are not neatly bundled in disciplinary packages — they must be approached from multiple, creative vantage points
