Exploring possibilities with Carey’s College of Medicine

Collaboration of some meaningful kind between the College of Health and William Carey University’s College of Medicine makes too much sense not to happen.  Beyond just sharing the vision of a healthier region, I can feel a philosophical kinship between a holistic, community-oriented approach to medical care (theirs) and a range of programs aiming at disease prevention, health promotion, and well-being (ours).

WCU Dean Jim Turner and I had a good long chat yesterday, incorporating a tour of building expansion underway after just three years of medical school operation.   Research connections seem a natural starting point for doing some work together, but perhaps no more so than offering a Master of Public Health program tailored to the needs of WCU medical students (Dr. Turner himself is currently a student in our executive format MPH), or jointly sponsoring professional development opportunities.  We shall see how things develop.
