Healthcare Studies at The College at Brockport
The mission of the Department of Healthcare Studies is to prepare individuals for roles in the healthcare field, with the ultimate goal that graduates will provide and support culturally-competent and evidence-based healthcare that improves the lives of patients, their families, and the community. Each program within the department has a curriculum that is designed to provide the knowledge, skills, abilities, and values required to succeed in the profession or area of healthcare that it serves. Each program emphasizes the development of competencies and professional skills that are outlined by the accrediting and/or governing bodies for each profession and that prepare graduates for early careerist positions and/or graduate education. Further, the programs prepare alumni to hold positions of increasing responsibility during their careers.
