Overview ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
The College of Health Sciences, with a campus in Pomona, California and a campus in Lebanon, Oregon, is comprised of unique academic programs that share a commitment to innovation, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and a passion for serving our communities.
Community Service is at the Core of What We Do
CHS faculty and students are engaged in a variety of community service opportunities that also offer our students hands-on experience. At health fairs we have assessed grip strength (marker of all-cause mortality), blood pressure, balance, strength and flexibility, and provided general home exercise plans and resistance bands to volunteer patients.
We have volunteered providing sports physicals for ReachOut Pomona, Health fairs with the Pomona Day Laborer Center, and health screenings for the homeless. We have helped with the Southern California Special Olympics, the Fairplex STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) fair, and Pipeline events.
DPT faculty and students volunteer with the So Cal Trykers (mission to assist children and adults acquire adapted tricycles) – they assist with fitting and learning to ride. DPT participates in many events for pediatric patients and have continually been a part of the Student Government Association Health Fair booth at the LA County Fair.
Commitment TO DIVERSITY
The WesternU College of Health Sciences is committed to creating an academic environment that celebrates diversity and the value that multicultural perspectives add to the quality of the educational experience.
Many health care organizations embrace the concept of Interprofessional Education (IPE). IPE equips our students with the skills necessary to improve competency and confidence and decrease errors. Students gain valuable hands-on experience working side-by-side with other students and faculty members to address the changing needs of patients.
