Health Sciences

The Mission of Health Science Education: Health science education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the health care industry through collaboration among education, the healthcare industry, policy makers and professional organizations.

 

To Accomplish this Mission:

The complete health science education program will target students:

  • Through high quality classroom and laboratory instruction

  • Develop premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through career student technical organizations

We aspire for excellence as we recruit, prepare and encourage individuals to pursue careers in the health sciences.

We serve the community and inform them about health science education, its needs, opportunities and challenges, as well as provide life long career skills.

 

Health Science Education programs will respond to community needs and prepare students to enter the workforce ready to participate as leaders in a broad range of careers.

National Consortium for Health Science Education

National Consortium for Health Science Education      The National Consortium on Health Science Education (formerly known as National Consortium on Health Science and Technology Education) is a national partnership of individuals and organizations with a vested interest in health science education. The consortium was organized in 1991 to stimulate creative and innovative leadership for ensuring a well prepared healthcare workforce. In April 2009, the name of the consortium was officially changed to the National Consortium for Health Science Education (NCHSE).

Formation of the consortium followed numerous discussions among health careers educators from several key states. The group recognized the critical need to reduce duplication and fragmentation of healthcare educational efforts and to position the educational system to meet the human resource demands of the healthcare industry. The National Consortium for Health Science Education is an incorporated, non-profit organization and has a 501(c)(3)tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service.
