Healthcare and Wellness

Caring for the health of others is a complex and diverse undertaking. There are hundreds of professions that provide a lifelong service to people and animals for their comfort and wellness. This CLAS Career Network is broad and diverse in scope and encompasses professions within the One Health perspective related to the interaction of human, animals and the environment while also incorporating professions related to healthcare administration, patient care, public and global health and research. This CLAS Career Network offers opportunities for students to strengthen their knowledge regarding the profession, the patient/family healthcare experience, healthcare issues. The ultimate goal of the Healthcare and Wellness CLAS Career Network is to assist and support students in a holistic process of health career exploration, education, and preparation to develop both personally and professionally as they prepare for life-long service to others.
