The world has changed because of COVID-19, and the University of Washington’s top-ranked health sciences programs are already preparing for the future.

From the global pandemic to child welfare to health equity, solutions to global issues affecting population health are rooted in our ability to train health-care professionals to work together effectively. We envision a future where seamlessly integrated teams of dentists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, public health practitioners and social workers contribute to better and more cost-effective outcomes — and a healthier public.

The UW is one of few academic institutions uniquely poised to create one of the nation’s first integrated training facilities, with its full suite of health sciences programs co-located on campus and working toward deeper collaboration. A new Health Sciences Education Building will transform how we teach students so they can work together meaningfully as a team of professionals to care for millions of people.
