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.
