If physicians, hospitals and patients are the building blocks of a health care system, we provide the mortar.
It takes a lot to bring together all the parts of our great health care system, connecting service providers with patients with health care professionals and more. Yet that is just what Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., has been quietly doing for quite some time now. Medical schools nationwide covet our pre-med students—in fact, often accepting a higher percentage of our students than their own. Our “Transform Aging” programs are preparing a new generation of health care professionals who see successful health care for this key demographic in a different way. Lipscomb opened the first college of pharmacy in Middle Tennessee, and our nursing students have been supporting area hospitals and health care facilities for years, even some in remote villages around the world. Our graduate programs in health care informatics and computer security are especially aimed at producing the professionals who will shape electronic medical records. And Lipscomb’s College of Business offers one of the few MBAs in the area specific to the health care industry. As you can see, we are helping build Nashville as a health care capital by educating professionals who will successfully and creatively connect the blocks one at a time.
