Each discipline within our college has its roots in outreach to the community; they all prepare students for their professions by engaging them in activities that apply the theories and concepts learned in the classroom for a comprehensive understanding of the issues. Students are required to complete clinical experiences, field work, or internships through one of the many affiliation agreements with a myriad of health and human service agencies in our region. Two nationally recognized mobile health and wellness units provide ways for students to apply their newly acquired skills in the provision of prevention services to residences in our region. CHHS is dedicated to preparing health and human services professionals who will work to improve the quality of life in their communities and beyond. The Institute for Rural Health and South Central KY AHEC are also housed in, or overseen by CHHS.
