This program provides educational opportunities for career advancement, employment mobility and lifelong learning. The curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundation in the health care system, cultural awareness and research while leaving room for the student to utilize elective credits to focus on a professional area of interest or specialization. The multidisciplinary nature of the program is enhanced by the diversity of the students and faculty. Students benefit from examining the industry with other professions and sharing experiences from their perspective.
