Midwestern University has embraced the One Health philosophy, which supports the collaborative efforts of multiple health sciences professionals to consider the interaction of human health, animal health and the environment in our efforts to provide optimum health care. As a key participant in this commitment, CDMI created an interdisciplinary Grand Rounds program as a core part of its curriculum and culture.
In December, Tyler Junior College celebrated the first graduates of its new Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program. It is the only community college in Texas to offer a B.S. in dental hygiene, and is one of four community colleges in the state to offer any type of baccalaureate award.
A collaborative effort between the dental assisting and dental hygiene students and faculty makes Ozarks Technical Community College Dental Programs a hallmark program. Peer mentoring, community service and statewide networking opportunities provide students with a complete education.
