Your Gateway to the Health Professions

The College of Health Sciences embodies the World Health Organization statement: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." (WHO, 1948). We teach new models of affordable healthcare, the Patient Centered Medical Home concept, and expanded roles for practitioners, electronic medical records and telehealth. Students take advantage of opportunities to conduct research and volunteer through our many national and international clubs, organizations and programs. 

UW Health Sciences educates the Wyoming health care workforce to provide high quality care to Wyoming and beyond. We proudly participate in WWAMI, a regional medical education program with the University of Washington School of Medicine. WWAMI is the primary means of access for allopathic medical education in Wyoming. UW Health Sciences also supports two Family Medicine Residency programs in Casper and Cheyenne, and the Albany Community Health Clinic (ACHC).

Grant to Help Children Affected by Opioid Epidemic Awarded to Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND)

The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) at the University of Wyoming recently received an Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) grant to address the opioid crisis.

The grant allows WIND to develop a training initiative addressing neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) and neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS). NAS is a multisymptom group of conditions caused when an infant withdraws from certain drugs, including opiates, after prenatal exposure.

Project Supporting Children of the Opioid Epidemic (SCOPE) is a training initiative intended to identify and train practitioners in current and emerging knowledge and evidence-based practices. The practices include screening, monitoring and care for children diagnosed with NAS/NOWS, or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use and related trauma exposure.

WIND will partner with the Nisonger Center at Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities for this project. Learn more from UW News!
