Teaching and Health Professions

Teaching and Health Professions House
(Application Code M24C)

In the Teaching and Health Professions house, we believe that education is more than just classroom instruction. That is why students who are part of our community are offered fieldwork opportunities, as well. Experience is a great teacher. Through internships, mentorships, and a variety of electives unique to our community, students develop the patience, knowledge, flexibility, and compassion to work effectively with all people. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of professionalism, including rigorous accountability, clear communication, and respectful interactions with each other and with people outside of our community.
