About the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences
NOTE: For Academic Session 2020-2021, the ISHS -Thompson Building is closed to students. Exceptionally, students may be able to meet with professors by appointment only, but more typically all student-professor interactions will be virtual.
Through its stimulating and creative culture, the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences educates students on how to contribute to the promotion and improvement of the health and wellbeing of individuals and of populations.
The interdisciplinary approach to the basics of health sciences and to the multiple factors and interrelationships of illnesses allows students and researchers to discover innovative ways to examine complex health problems at all stages of life. The School has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methodologies in activities ranging from biological mechanisms to health status and the psychosocial and environmental determinants of health. Areas of research focus include aging, bioscience of disease, health technologies, and reproductive health.
In addition to a Bachelor of Health Sciences, the School offers a Master of Science (MSc) in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences and a Doctorate (PhD) in Population Health.
