The College of Health Sciences

Welcome to the College of Health Sciences!

Healthcare and the health professions are rapidly changing to meet the demands of today's patients/clients. New models of providing affordable healthcare are emerging and being integrated into practice. The Patient Centered Medical Home concept, expanded roles for practitioners, electronic medical records, and telehealth are only a few  of the new approaches. As would be expected, these changes have a direct effect on teaching healthcare professionals.

Our Mission:

The College of Health Sciences at the University of Wyoming endeavors to be a leader and partner in the education, innovation, and application of health and human sciences.

Our Vision:

The University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences vision is encapsulated in the enduring 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."

We promote optimal health and wellness through interprofessional teaching, research, and service within an inclusive and supportive environment. We embrace rich and diverse learning experiences that emphasize equity, justice, and genuine participation to prepare highly competent, culturally proficient leaders who can meet current and future health and human needs. We are committed to advancing scientific knowledge and meaningful translational discoveries and the provision of professional, scholarly, and collaborative activities that serve the needs of our distinctive frontier state, the country, and world.
