Prepare to help, heal through the UW-Stevens Point School of Health Care Professions

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.

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.

Help others through health science

Health science at UW-Stevens Point connects human elements with scientific processes. Our program gives you the skills to work in a rapidly evolving field, incorporating new technologies with innovative problem-solving techniques to help people get healthy. With options including options including health care administration, health care informatics, pre-occupational therapy and pre-physical therapy, the health science major is designed to help you learn more about the many options available within the field of health care as well as prepare some students for graduate-level specialties.

Nursing: changing lives

The pre-nursing program provides prerequisite courses for admission to schools of nursing, including those at other University of Wisconsin System schools, private universities and technical colleges.
