Academic Partnerships: University College Classes
Thank you for your interest in exploring a health related career! University Health Services has partnered with University College to offer academic credit through classes that offer exposure to various medical fields and hands-on skills within the UHS clinic. The purpose is to give students well rounded exposure to the many health careers that fall under the expertise of University Health Services (UHS) staff and beyond. UHS has a full outpatient clinic, pharmacy, health education department, clinic lab, radiology, and dedicated women’s clinic. Additionally, there are professions that tie into healthcare administration, healthcare information technology, and patient services.
At the end of each class, students will be able to more closely identify with all occupational responsibilities within the clinic, as well as have a broad appreciation of what it’s like to work in a healthcare facility. Some programming will be general health industry related topics while other areas will be more targeted towards interacting with staff in their roles. The courses are listed in the course catalog as UNIV 2511 and UNIV 2611.
Please note this is a professional partnership with University College. There is coursework involved, in addition to a hands-on experience that UHS provides. The Director for pre-professional student support services and the professor for these courses, Ms. Jessica Priddy-Bullock, is located in the Student Union basement 040. She is more than happy to meet with any student interested in health professions. She can answer any questions about the courses and also provide guidance as pre-professional healthcare majors prepare for admission to a variety of professional or graduate programs.
