The health care field is rapidly changing and we are in a unique position to help
you gain the expertise you need to succeed -- and lead.
An Interdisciplinary Experience
In a world with increasingly complex health issues, it is essential for contemporary
healthcare professionals to have a regional and global understanding of health, an
expert understanding of the social determinants of health and the skills to communicate
messages effectively to different audiences.
Since many of us take the same classes, we can study together and help each other
reach our goals. Patterson Hall is in the center of campus, so residents can easily
reach almost every activity USC has to offer. Galen Health Fellows is exemplary because
the faculty and community share ideas and encourage us to develop our character as
McKenzi, Integrated Information Technology Major
The Galen experience is built upon
five core competencies that are the hallmark of your time in the community. These competencies are essential
for you to become a well-rounded allied health student. Moreover, they will give you
a strategic advantage when you’re applying for graduate school or moving directly
into the work force.
Dr. David Simmons was named Faculty Principal in March of 2017. He is
an associate professor in anthropology and public health.
