Welcome to the Center for Health Sciences within the College of Natural and Health Sciences at UWP.
Medicine has been described as both an art and a science, and I believe this to be true. The degrees, programs, and students within the Center for Health Sciences reflect this duality. Successful applicants to professional programs not only need to be strong academic performers and scholars, they also need to be dedicated to the field of health and medicine, be committed to helping others, and have a strong sense of community service.
At Parkside, all of these facets are emphasized. Graduates from our programs are prepared to be competitive candidates for professional programs as demonstrated by our high percentage of students gaining acceptance to these programs. Our students’ successes are due in part to a well-developed program of intrusive and detailed advising which includes personalized course selection and schedules, admissions test preparation, internship assistance, application guidance, practice interviews, and many other areas of support.
I like to say that there is no part of a student’s educational and professional journey that we will not be a part of. It has been and continues to be my goal to create an environment within our program where students feel supported and know there is a place on campus where they can always come for help and guidance. Our students are not just numbers, we truly and sincerely want to help and guide our students every step along their journey. Most importantly, I believe that every student can be successful at achieving their educational and professional goals-it is our job to help them get there.
