The College of Health Sciences mission is to prepare and inspire health leaders, professionals, and consumers through collaborative and innovative approaches to education, research and community service.

Mission Moments

Welcome to the first cohort of future WCU Physician Assistants! From more than 850 applications, 27 students began their PA studies on July 6. This impressive group comes to us from as far away as California, Texas, Minnesota, and Vermont! They kicked off the program with a soft pretzel welcome and now they're hard at work. Congratulations on your acceptance and we're glad to have you! Program information can be found here.
