Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs, Minors and Certificates

The Keck Minor in Health Care Studies, launched in 2012, is designed for undergraduates who wish to pursue a postgraduate career in health care or health care related fields. Students are exposed to course work and skills that are practical and relevant to the foundation necessary for a future career in health care. The minor brings together course work that explores health care both in the classroom and the clinical settings. Students are given practical hands-on activity and experiences in research laboratories, hospital, simulation lab, cadaver lab and other unique settings not typically offered at an undergraduate level.

The Minor in Health Care Studies will:

  1. Provide instruction in domains identified as prerequisite competencies for health professions education.
  2. Provide content related to contemporary issues in health care.
  3. Provide students with an introduction to clinical care.
  4. Demonstrate the importance of scientific research and its applications to clinical practice.
