Health Care Delivery Requirements
About the Program
The Health Care Delivery concentration is designed to provide multidisciplinary exposure to a variety of perspectives, content, and practices related to the provision of health care services. It is anticipated that upon graduation concentrators will pursue their education in a health professional school (for example, in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, dentistry, veterinary, public health, physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, and medical social work) or pursue a career (with the undergraduate degree) in a health-related setting such as a medical clinic, counseling center, voluntary health agency, family planning clinic, nursing home, or health insurance company.
The concentration is obtained by completion of six courses that fulfill the following requirements. No more than three courses may be drawn from any one discipline.
