Transforming how we prepare the next generation of health care professionals

Training together

Today’s health care challenges cannot be solved from one viewpoint or with one kind of expertise. They require different perspectives and different disciplines to come together. That’s why our health sciences students learn together, solve problems together, and develop real-world working relationships.
