“My experience at MSU Denver truly changed who I am today personally and professionally. It has provided me the opportunity to advance as a Senior Leader in a large healthcare organization. I found the curriculum to be challenging and thought provoking over my time at MSU Denver. The faculty were very supportive, patient, and well verse in all aspects of Healthcare Management. The faculty coupled with the curriculum truly are what set the MSU Denver Healthcare Management program apart from many other programs."
"Studying Integrative Healthcare at MSU Denver has been an opportunity to learn and embrace health care from a holistic and scientific perspective. Integrating heath care through traditional medicinal and alternative oriented approaches, assessing whole person, including diet, lifestyle, and mental health. We learn to implement healing therapies such as herbal remedies, reflexology, aromatherapy, yoga, and nutrition, while promoting optimal health and lifestyle. I am currently a junior and plan to graduate in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in Integrative Healthcare and a minor in wellness coaching. I hope to one day have a holistic wellness center in my community."
"When I considered returning to school two years ago it was critically important to me that I do so only if there was a program that really connected with my interests and values. Then I discovered the Lifestyle Medicine program at MSU Denver, and I knew I had found a match. Since enrolling, I have experienced nothing but complete and total support from the amazing faculty, and an explosion of growth in my knowledge of health and wellness. Enrolling in the Lifestyle Medicine program has been life-changing for me, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the field of evidence-based wellness."
"I completed the MHA program on the accelerated track in 2020. While it was a lot of work, I learned so much and was anxious to enter the healthcare field. I dream to be a CEO of a hospital one day and I know the MHA program is exactly what I needed to help me get there!"
We look forward to meeting you.Book an appointment
