Changing the Way We Communicate Health Issues
The University of Utah is the primary institution for educating health providers and ancillary professionals in the state of Utah. Health communication is a crucial concern and a top priority as the nature, forms, and functions of health care and health information shift dramatically in contemporary society.
Students earning the Interdisciplinary Certificate in Health Communication respond to that increasing interest and demand for greater awareness and understanding of health communication. Specifically, the certificate program involves the study of how communication about health is co-created, transmitted, received, constructed, and circulated in various contexts.
The certificate is available for both undergraduate and graduate students who are current University of Utah students.
