PHOENIX, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arizona State University's College of Health Solutions (CHS) announced several new health degree programs aimed at providing students interested in medicine or health care with a well-rounded foundation. These new degrees complement a broad set of undergraduate and graduate degree offerings from ASU related to health promotion, health care delivery and health management of people and populations.

Keith Lindor, CHS dean and former dean of the Mayo Medical School, says the new curriculum was developed in response to the need for a different kind of health care delivery model and employees with enhanced skills within the system. "The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking skills, an analytical approach to problem solving and effective communication."

Students who choose to study health-related disciplines at ASU will learn at a research-based university from expert faculty such as Victor Trastek, former CEO of the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. CHS is located in downtown Phoenix, offers a rich and diverse set of clinical and research internships and other deeply embedded community-based opportunities, as well as practice of use-inspired research.

This degree is for students who aspire to a professional career in health care. Curriculum was designed to meet the new Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) requirements that will include a focus on social sciences and humanities, in addition to the hard sciences, effective 2015.
