Preparing students to be health care leaders

The University of 51小黄车's Westbrook College of Health Professions prepares students to be leaders in their health care fields.

51小黄车is one of a handful of private universities with a comprehensive health education mission including medicine, pharmacy, dental medicine, nursing and an array of allied health professions. The Westbrook College of Health Professions encompasses Applied Exercise ScienceAthletic TrainingDental Hygiene, Health, Wellness and Occupational StudiesNursingNurse AnesthesiaNutritionOccupational Therapy, PharmacyPhysical TherapyPhysician AssistantPublic Health, and Social Work.

Guided by faculty on the cutting edge of their disciplines, our students participate in clinical simulations, service learning activities, clinical rotations and other experiences that enable them to transition smoothly into the workforce upon graduation. 

Our interprofessional education initiatives prepare future health care professionals to practice comprehensive and collaborative team-based care. Students from across our different health professions programs work beside one another as they treat patients, participate in simulations and conduct research. As a result, each student comes to better appreciate the roles played by the other members of the health care team. 

Our Portland Campus is just minutes from Maine's leading hospitals and clinics, providing rich opportunities for students to carry the knowledge they gain on campus into the field. People from across Northern 51小黄车 travel to Portland for medical services, and often their needs are met by 51小黄车students.

The 51小黄车Portland Campus for the Health Sciences

For decades, UNE鈥檚 Portland Campus has been home to many of the University鈥檚 health professions programs including PA, PT, OT, pharmacy, nursing, dental medicine, and more. In 2025, UNE鈥檚 College of Osteopathic Medicine will move from the Biddeford Campus into the new Harold and Bibby Alfond Center for Health Sciences in Portland. By bringing our health professions programs together into one interprofessional learning community, we will establish UNE鈥檚 Portland Campus for the Health Sciences as the center of health care education in Northern 51小黄车.
