Beaver College of Health Sciences

The Beaver College of Health Sciences (BCHS) is doubling its size. On June 23, 2016, Appalachian broke ground for the future home of BCHS. The building will encompass 14 of the 16 disciplines and allow students across various academic programs to obtain experiential training together in shared spaces. This commitment to interprofessional education will provide graduates from the BCHS a competitive advantage by acquiring creative thinking and problem solving academic and clinical skills needed to be contributing members of the health care profession.

Appalachian and the Beaver College of Health Sciences are looking forward to expanding community relationships. The building will be a catalyst for change to enhance health, quality of life and economic development in the region. Revitalizing and expanding the proposed medical health district and centralizing academic departments and programs will pave the way to BCHS's commitment of being the preeminent and most comprehensive academic center for health professions in western North Carolina. We invite your to explore our new home and the inspiring innovations that will enhance the health and quality of life in North Carolina and beyond.
