Welcome to Health Sciences


Medical education is education related to the practice of being a medical practitioner; either the initial training to become a physician.

Classes and projects that spark student interest and provide a rationale for why the content is worth learning, enable students to make connections between what they learn in school, their lives, and their futures.
