College of Health Sciences Now Offering Human Health Sciences Degree

Published: Jun 14, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 14, 2012) -- The University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences is now accepting applications for its newest baccalaureate degree program, Human Health Sciences (HHS). The HHS program serves as a pre-professional undergraduate degree that provides students with a background in healthcare issues, prepares them to apply to specialized clinical degree programs at the graduate or professional level, and provides needed prerequisites in the sciences, mathematics and social sciences for professional study.

 

HHS courses are taught by faculty from a variety of healthcare professions. Approved by the UK Board of Trustees in May, the college is now accepting the first class for the 2012 fall semester. The inaugural class is expected to include about 70 students and will use a holistic, rolling admissions process. Geza Bruckner, professor and director in the Division of Clinical Nutrition, has been appointed Interim HHS Program Director.

 

“The HHS program is unique among pre-professional programs since it provides not only a sound basic sciences background for students pursuing careers in Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant  Studies or other graduate programs, but also provides a broad understanding of ethics, clinical leadership, management, health practices, health policies, and health law along with the skills needed to apply this knowledge base,” Bruckner said.

 

“Students will work in interprofessional teams throughout their undergraduate education with faculty mentors and will be very competitive for application to the pre-professional programs they seek. Students in the program will feel special because we care deeply about their success.”  

 

More information about the HHS degree can be found at www.mc.uky.edu/healthsciences/hhs. If you have questions, contact Wayne Centers, academic advisor, at wayne.centers@uky.edu or (859) 218-0864.
