Second annual D.H.Sc. institute inspiresPosted: February 22, 2011
A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) held its second winter institute for the online Doctor of Health Sciences (D.H.Sc.) program in Gilbert and Mesa, Ariz., on Feb. 7 – 11.
More than 100 students, 15 faculty, and five alumni attended the 2011 institute, titled Minding, Mending, and Moving Health Forward. Students toured the campus, listened to faculty and alumni presentations, and shared research projects with their colleagues. The week also provided an opportunity for students to meet face-to-face and discuss pertinent issues in healthcare.
“The students enjoyed seeing the campus, being welcomed by leaders of the University, including Drs. Wood, Maxwell, and Sauers, and spending time with faculty and staff of the program,” said D.H.Sc. Program Director Helen Ewing, D.H.Sc., R.N.
Student comments from the event:
“Everyone was so incredibly nice and professional. The school, faculty, and alumni were all first class!”
“I know that I made a great choice when I chose A.T. Still University, and the experience gave me an even greater desire to achieve this degree from this University.”
“This last week couldn’t have been better for me. I feel like a changed man. Inspiring barely covers the feeling I had.”
“It was a great experience, well worth the week investment. I have come to know my colleagues, their backgrounds, and expertise. I enjoyed the week and found it to be very interactive, challenging, and fun.”
“I wish every conference I went to had the same sense of camaraderie that was present this week.”
