Health Care Sciences

Health Care Sciences

The Department of Health Care Sciences consists of eight programs, which share a common theme of excellence in the education and training of those involved in patient care. The department is housed in the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (EACPHS) building which is near main, large health care institutions and close to the Wayne State University Medical School. Many of the department’s faculty, who are involved in health care related research, offer students opportunities to assist in research. This has enabled greater appreciation for health care management and clinical decision-making.
