The School of Health Care Professions at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point strives to give students interested in health-related careers hands-on training to nurture workplace success. We challenge students through majors such as clinical laboratory science, health science and pre-nursing. Join us to build in-demand skills for a rewarding industry dedicated to helping and healing.
Preparing medical professionals in athletic training
A degree in athletic training prepares you to prevent,
evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate injuries and illnesses related to
physical activity. At UW-Stevens Point, you'll
be part of the first
comprehensive athletic training major in the state and benefit from a
cutting-edge learning environment in our Sports Medicine Center. You'll
benefit from small class sizes, active academic advising, engaged
faculty, superb laboratory facilities and
top-notch practicum experiences.
Clinical laboratory science degree provides versatility
The clinical laboratory science
(CLS) program is among the largest in the state and one of the
few with national accreditation. Clinical laboratory science professionals integrate biology, chemistry and medicine to help maintain public health, and diagnose, monitor and treat diseases. Our options within the major include:
- medical technology, which studies blood, body fluids and tissues using sophisticated techniques and biomedical instrumentation through laboratory analyses;
- cytotechnology, which studies cells and cell abnormalities; and
- histotechnology, which studies bodily organs and tissues.
