Integrative Healthcare Studies

A  healthcare medical graphic.

Integrative Healthcare Studies gives you the opportunity to experience numerous healthcare professions early in your college career.

Explore our Integrative Healthcare Studies at D'Youville and gain knowledge and experience across the medical spectrum while you build on your education. After you complete the Integrative Health Studies experience, you'll join fellow students at Match Day, a one-of-a-kind event where you'll be offered scholarship and financial aid package for every healthcare field you have been admitted into.



Interprofessional Summer Summit

The summer before their first year, students join their fellow students to explore healthcare careers in real-world settings.

Healthcare General Education Track

Students explore their general education curriculum with a twist: applied healthcare lab experiences and a community-based project.

Match Day

Students present their community-based projects alongside their community partner. During match day, students will  discover the programs they have been selected to enter and scholarships they have won.  



Students take courses that meet both the general education requirements and natural science prerequisites necessary to be completed for application to a variety of Healthcare majors. Students will have a dedicated academic advisor who will assist them in navigating the advisement track that is right for them. After two semesters of successful course work, students will attend a Match Day.

On Match Day, students will receive an official acceptance letter from their matched program and begin a new chapter in their journey to a career in healthcare.
