Interdisciplinary Health Services is a program designed for students who intend to pursue careers in health-related fields, such as Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician’s Assistant, Speech Therapy or Health Administration. The curriculum prepares students for a wide range of health care positions in hospitals, health departments, health agencies, research facilities, schools, and industry. This Program develops individuals who approach medicine using a carative model – that is, the focus is placed upon the patient living with and coping with a particular disease. This philosophy is in contrast to traditional medical practices that are based upon a curative model whereby patient care primarily involves fixing or curing the disease.
