School of Health Sciences

The School of Health Sciences programs at Ivy Tech Terre Haute campus are proud of the direct hands-on skills learning and practice opportunities that are provided to students.  In order to do this, we strive to emulate the equipment used in the clinical setting as often as possible.  As technology continues to evolve, the purchase of new equipment is a challenge to keep up with in some of our programs.  You can help be part of our students’ success by contributing to our School of Health Sciences!    

When students are learning a new skill, the class will often have to share equipment with multiple students.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for an improved ratio of students to equipment allowing them to have more time.  These funds will be used for equipment purchases such as ultrasound machines, respiratory equipment and lab equipment, just to name a few items.  All Health Sciences programs at the Terre Haute campus will benefit from this Endowment:  Paramedic Sciences, Respiratory Therapy, Surgical Technology, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Medical Laboratory Technology, Medical Imaging, Medical Assisting and Healthcare Specialist (CNA, QMA, Phlebotomy, Massage).
