Stetson University's health sciences program educates in health specializations through hands-on laboratories and informative lectures while integrating biology, chemistry, physics, physiology and nutrition studies of the human body. Additionally, there is an emphasis on both medicine and disease prevention. The specializations vary across medical fields and provide an opportunity to find your passion in the health profession.
Why Health Sciences at Stetson University?
The Health Sciences program utilizes enhanced technology in the classroom. For instance, anatomy and physiology classes use Visible Body courseware, which has many educational features, including augmented reality functionality that allows users to project and manipulate a 3D anatomical model on any flat surface. Further, students can download all five Visible Body apps and keep them for life.
According to health sciences professor Heather Evans-Anderson, PhD, Visible Body is different from other software in that it allows students the ability to manipulate anatomical structures.
Students in the Health Sciences program have access to vast software and laboratory work, not just to further their education, but also to prepare them for their profession of choice.
