Welcome to the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences.

Your journey will take you through many twists and turns, but follow the path with intention and know that you are going to help shape the future of healthcare delivery for the rest of your lives. Today, more than ever, healthcare is being delivered by interprofessional teams. These teams drive person-centered care in clinics, hospital systems, the community, schools and more. Through experiential learning and global opportunities during your time at UDCHS, you are going to explore where healthcare delivery will be able to take you and shape your passion. Whether that’s at the forefront of cancer diagnostics, delivering care in a hospital or long-term care facility, leading the charge in value-based models of prevention and wellness or delivering an exercise prescription to friends and neighbors with chronic disease, UDCHS will unleash your potential and help prepare you to be a next-generation healthcare leader. Wherever your journey takes you, please know there are hundreds of thousands of Delawareans and hundreds of millions around the country that will be relying on you for their care.

You are the future of healthcare and that future starts today! The sky is the limit!

All the best – 
Kathleen S. Matt
