U. New Haven announces health sciences school

The University of New Haven says it's expanding its health education offerings through the recent opening of a School of Health Sciences, which will include programs ranging from undergraduate to doctoral.

The new school will offer allied health and health sciences programs, and also develop a public health program, the university said. It is comprised of numerous departments and programs, including allied health, nutrition sciences, health administration and policy, as well as dental hygiene, healthcare administration, health sciences, nutrition and dietetics, and paramedicine.

The West Haven-based private university has been working on the school for about three years, officials said.

It will be led by Summer McGee, chair of the health sciences department, as dean, and include 12 full-time facility, 30 clinical faculty members and more than 400 students.

"The University of New Haven has an incredible opportunity to build upon its existing reputation in allied health and health policy and expand into new areas of teaching and research focused on population health, health technology, and the rapidly changing healthcare landscape," McGee said in a statement.
