CU Denver is challenging outmoded ideas of how we define health-related careers and changing the way future generations will perceive, innovate, and apply the concept of health. Our vision of total health embraces the reality that health impacts not only each individual within a community, but every aspect of the community itself—how it’s designed, how it operates, and how seemingly disparate communities are actually interconnected.
We have a shared goal of advancing total health through a variety of degree programs, educational disciplines, and career paths. To find the academic path that aligns with your interests, please visit the program categories below.
