Center for Health Sciences

Programs of Study Faculty

Established in 2011, the Center for Health Sciences includes the College of Allied Health, Carr College of Nursing, and the College of Pharmacy. The Center for Health Sciences was established in 2011 to enhance collaboration and encourage interprofessional education among all of Harding University’s health-related programs.  By organizing all such programs into one unit, expertise can be tapped, efficiencies can be realized, and resources can be shared.  The resulting synergy enhances the educational experience for students while elevating professional opportunities for faculty and staff.
