Division Mission

The Division of Health Sciences programs are designed to:

Strengthen students' intellectual capacities and abilities to develop and mobilize human and institutional resources and services to meet the health needs of diverse individuals and populations, as well as the communities in which they reside.

Educate students in developing and implementing evidence-based assessment and intervention models that improve the biopsychosocial health of diverse individuals and populations, as well as the communities in which they reside.

Prepare scholar-practitioners to engage in multidisciplinary scientific inquiry that advances the knowledge base of research and practice in the health disciplines.

Prepare graduates who will be leaders in their fields and professions to inform and influence professional dialogues on key health issues affecting diverse individuals and populations, as well as the communities in which they reside.

Prepare scholar-activists who – with global consciousness and ecosystemic perspectives – are committed to attaining health equity and collective well-being through the promotion of human development, universal human rights, and social justice.

Program Description

Health Science offers a variety of programs including a major with different options leading to the Bachelor of Science in Health Science.

The Community Health Option is designed to provide students with the necessary skills and perspectives to function as effective community health workers and educators in an urban population that is diverse ethnically, economically and demographically. Students will gain knowledge and understanding of health behavior and strategies for change, health disparities among diverse populations, and the development of programs that increase access to healthcare and related services.

A student in this option will acquire oral and written communication skills needed to develop health education materials and gain a basic understanding of public health problems and methods commonly used in studying and addressing these problems. Registered nurses and allied health care workers will be able to serve their patients more effectively by becoming knowledgeable about community health service agencies and public health policy at all levels of government. Upon completion of the Community Health Option, students will qualify to take the national Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) examination.

The Healthcare Management Option is designed to provide students with a general foundation in the principles and theories of management, the skills needed by frontline or middle level supervisors in a health care unit, an understanding of the organizational structure of the health care system, the financing of health care services in the United States, and knowledge of current health policies at local, state and federal levels.

The Radiologic Technology Option is designed to accommodate the entering undergraduate or transfer student already certified in the profession. The entering program is offered in collaboration with the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology, which is currently accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education for Radiologic Technologists and approved by the State of California Department of Education for Radiologic Technology training. Upon completion of the program, students will be qualified to take the certification examinations given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. A separate application to the Radiologic Technology Option for entering students is required. Refer to the Radiologic Technology Option section for further information on the application process and eligibility for consideration as a candidate. Refer also to the Harbor-UCLA School of Radiologic Technology website.

Features

The Healthcare Management and Community Health options are designed for practicing health professionals and future community health and healthcare personnel. Students may also apply to Radiologic Technology. Since many students work during the day, many health science courses are offered in the late afternoon, evening and on weekends, and many meet only once a week. To keep the health science programs contemporary, most of the health science courses are taught by practicing professionals.

The transfer program is designed for Certified/Registered Radiologic Technologists who wish to earn a BS degree. This program is not competitive but students must met admission criteria.

Academic Advisement

All students are urged to consult with advisors throughout their matriculation at CSU Dominguez Hills. At the very least, advisors should be consulted for the following:

  • Admission
  • Career plans and choices
  • Selection of options
  • Variation in programs and/or "course substitution"
  • Pre-registration advisement
  • Filing for graduation

Advisement is available through the College of Health, Human Services, and Nursing Student Services Center at 1-310-243-2120 or 1-800-344-5484.

Preparation

Students interested in healthcare management or community health may complete their lower division general education, preferably with an associate of science degree, before coming to CSU Dominguez Hills. Those students who are interested in the clinically related options should have a strong science background in high school and should have completed most of the lower division prerequisite courses for the option before entering the Health Sciences Program. For clinical options, some direct care experience is required.

Credit for Prior Health Education

If students have completed a clinical program for which they did not receive academic credit, they may be granted credit for that education. Please consult the health science office for details. The credits obtained for a clinical program may be applied as lower division elective credits toward the Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science only.

Procedures and Admission Criteria

Only a limited number of students can be accommodated in the clinical options. In addition to filing a completed application to the university, students must also complete the desired option application form to be considered for admission. Admission to these clinical options is not automatically ensured by meeting academic requirements, nor does admission to CSU Dominguez Hills as a Health Science Major guarantee acceptance into individual clinical options.

Graduation with Honors in the Major

An undergraduate student may be a candidate for graduation with honors in Health Science provided s/he meet the following criteria:

  1. A minimum of 36 units in residence at CSU Dominguez Hills;
  2. A minimum grade point average of at least 3.5 in courses used to satisfy the upper division requirements in the major;
  3. Recommendation by the Health Science faculty.

Master of Science in Health Science

Orthotics and Prosthetics Option (64-66 units)

Orthotics and prosthetics is a specialized health care profession, which combines a unique blend of clinical and technical skills to care for patients who have neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders and/or patients who have a partial or total absence of a limb. Orthotists and prosthetists provide treatment that allows these individuals to lead more active and independent lives by collaborating with other members of the health care team. This work requires substantial clinical and technical judgment.

The principles of biomechanics, pathomechanics, gait analysis, kinesiology, anatomy and physiology are crucial to the practitioner's ability to provide comprehensive patient care and a positive clinical outcome. Patient assessment, treatment and education are part of the practitioner's responsibility and require collaborative communication skills.

In addition to performing orthotic and prosthetic procedures, the orthotists and prosthetists are involved in clinical decision-making and patient education. The scope of practice for orthotists and prosthetists includes, but is not limited to:

  • Patient Assessment- Perform a comprehensive assessment of the patient to obtain an understanding of the patient's orthotic/prosthetic needs.
  • Formulation of the treatment plan- Create a comprehensive orthotic/prosthetic treatment plan to meet the needs and goals of the patient.
  • Implementation of the treatment plan- Perform the necessary procedures to deliver the appropriate orthotic/prosthetic services, which include fabrication of the devices required.
  • Follow-up treatment plan- Provide continuing patient care and periodic evaluation to assure/maintain/document optimal fit and function of the orthosis/prosthesis.
  • Practice management- Develop, implement and/or monitor policies and procedures regarding human resource management, physical environment management, business/financial management and organizational management.
  • Promotion of competency and enhancement of professional practice- Participate in personal and professional development through continuing education, training, research and organizational affiliations.

Pre-Admission Disclosure for Academic Programs Leading to Licensure or Credentialing

Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements.
