Health Care Sciences

This Department provides basic and inter­dis­ciplinary courses available to all health professions Programs. In addition, it serves as an administrative base for the Prosthetics-Orthotics and Radiation Therapy Programs, along with the Area Health Education Center and the Commu­nity Prevention and Intervention Unit.

The Department is also home to the Division of Health Care Education and Research. The Divi­sion directs and supports interdisciplinary educa­tion and research, not only between UT South­western School of Health Professions Departments and Programs, but also within the entire Medical Center.

Enrollment in many courses in this section is restricted. Students interested in taking any of the following courses as electives should consult their advisors or the Office of the Dean.
