The International School of Biomedical Diagnostics will be a global center for research, teaching and service in the emerging field of biomedical diagnostics. The school will pull expertise from faculty across ASU, in collaboration with Dublin City University (DCU), Ventana Medical Systems, and other industry partners.
The Bachelor of Science in Medical Studies program provides students interested in health care and medicine with a well-rounded foundation in social sciences, humanities, interprofessionalism, and leadership, in addition to the basic health/medical science prerequisites necessary for graduate programs in health care and medicine. The curriculum for this program has been designed to meet new MCAT requirements.
The emerging and trans-disciplinary science of health care delivery field was conceived with the goal to offer an educational program focused on patient-centered, safe and cost-effective health care system development. Quality improvement, health disparities and interventions, health education, health economics, health policy, data analysis, interprofessional teamwork and leadership skills, change management and evidence-based assessment and management will drive much of the coursework within the program.
The School of Nutrition and Health Promotion (SNHP) is dedicated to the provision of a rigorous, high caliber education for students interested in Nutrition, Exercise and Wellness, Kinesiology, Health Sciences, and Medical Laboratory Sciences. The School is committed to the engagement in and the application of research designed to promote health and well-being and to reduce to the risk of chronic diseases across the lifespan and throughout society.
The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) upholds a strong partnership among academic researchers, clinical practitioners, and regional health care providers in the advancement of research and education in the science and practice of biomedical informatics. Bioinformatics focuses on the development and application of computational tools for the analysis of biomedical data (such as genomic and proteomic information) as well as the study of biological systems.
The Department of Speech and Hearing Science (SHS) investigates the science of spoken human communication. Using speech to communicate requires the ability to produce speech, the ability to appropriately process language, and the ability to hear the sounds of speech. SHS has up-to-date, well-equipped clinics and strong community partnerships in advancing the clinical-training mission, with a world-class, well-funded faculty to make new discoveries about speech, language, and hearing and to educate students at all levels.
The Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) program is new to the College of Health Solutions as of January 1, 2013. This program prepares behavioral clinicians to provide integrated behavioral care in primary care and other medical settings. One of the key components to current health care policy is to improve the integration of medical and behavioral care; this program answers that calling and provides the needed training clinicians will benefit from as they move ahead in their related fields.
