Minor in Health Care Studies

In a landmark new partnership, the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and the Keck School of Medicine of USC are excited to offer a new minor in Health Care Studies.  The new minor brings together top faculty from the Health Sciences and University Park campuses and offers an experience that is unmatched and unavailable at other universities across the nation.

With a minor in Health Care, you will...

As the American health care system undergoes one of its most important transformations in a generation, it is becoming clear that aspiring health care professionals will need much more than just a post-graduate degree to navigate a career in the field.  Professionals from across a wide spectrum of disciplines – physicians, dentists, engineers, hospital administrators and business people - will all need to understand the big picture. 

Through an innovative array of new course offerings students in the new minor will receive instruction from prominent leaders across a variety of fields of medical science and clinical practice.  They will also gain access to biomedical researchers, health care administrators and other faculty from across the University whose expertise will help shape the next generation of health care professionals.  For those interested in global health, the new program will also offer another venue for exposure to USC’s many international health experts and programs.
