    • Educate the next generation of allied health professionals—including practicing clinical staff, advance practice staff, faculty and researchers—and the general public.
    • Provide service that promotes the health and well-being of diverse individuals, families, communities, populations and systems.

  3. To improving the general health and well-being of the public. In pursuit of its goals, the department will be committed to excellence in education of various healthcare disciplines and research.
