If physi­cians, hos­pi­tals and pa­tients are the build­ing blocks of a health care sys­tem, we pro­vide the mor­tar.

Modern Healthcare - - NASHVILLE HEALTH CARE COUNCIL -

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.
