The University of Western States is a leader in integrated health care education. We hire and retain superior quality faculty who have committed their lives to teaching and mentorship, scholarship and service. Our programs are comprised of rigorous, serious, practical curricula. Our curricula are steeped in science and evidence, preparing graduates to serve their communities; to practice their art in credible, evidence-informed ways, and; to embrace a life-long love of learning. We believe that the practitioner of the 21st century needs to be focused on the good of the patient more than ever before. For that reason, our graduates are trained to understand multiple health care delivery environments- whether as a solo practitioner or as a part of an integrated, multidisciplinary health team member.
Our approach has always been to provide a hands-on education to prepare our students for hands-on careers. Our low student-to-faculty ratios create an environment that is encouraging and supportive. Your time spent at UWS will be stimulating and framed by a solid network of support that ensures you will meet the academic and professional challenges you face while achieving a work-life balance. What you can expect from UWS is simple: a superior education, a supportive environment, and a well-rounded knowledge base that will put you on the right track toward a fulfilling career.
