Roseman University of Health Sciences has received a $10,000 donation from UnitedHealthcare and Southwest Medical Associates to fund scholarships for pharmacy, nursing and dental students at the university’s Henderson, Nev., and South Jordan, Utah, campuses. Southwest Medical is a part of OptumCare.
“The university thanks UnitedHealthcare and Southwest Medical for their support of our ambitious and hardworking students,” said Dr. Renee Coffman, president of Roseman University. “Graduates in health care are in high demand as the need for high-quality patient care continues to grow. With the support of organizations like UnitedHealthcare and Southwest Medical, our students are able to achieve their educational goals and become competent and compassionate health care professionals.”
“Roseman University plays a vital role in educating the type of quality health care professionals we need in Utah,” said Pam Gold of UnitedHealthcare in Utah. “We support the university’s efforts to enhance and expand Utah’s health care workforce.”
“We are honored to support Roseman University and the important role it plays in in educating Nevada’s future health care professionals and leaders,” said Robert McBeath, M.D., president and CEO of Southwest Medical. “By working together we are helping ensure that people will have access to quality health care in our community.”
Roseman University embraces active and collaborative learning in a classroom environment designed to accommodate the varied learning styles of students, to encourage participation and foster teamwork. According to Coffman, the University’s 21st century curriculum is delivered through Roseman’s Six Point Mastery Learning Model, to train a different kind of student to thrive and practice in today’s complex world of medicine and patient care.
