UW-Eau Claire has a long history of providing students interested in pursuing a future in health sciences with a quality education. To continue to build on this success, Dr. Mel Kantor was brought to campus as the Oliver M. Ramsey Endowed Chair to form the Institute for Health Sciences. The goals of providing high quality advising and innovative learning experiences for students are at the core of the institute. Watch the video below to learn more about Dr. Mel Kantor's visions for the Institute for Health Sciences.
My goal as chair is to promote multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations in the areas of curriculum, research, scholarship and service, as well as develop and strengthen linkages with regional health care providers.
Collaborations across campus
Several departments and programs across campus are innovatively working together to prepare students for their futures. Our goal is to continually build and improve on the connections between health-related and non-health-related disciplines in order to provide Blugolds with unique interdisciplinary opportunities.
