Our mission is to promote Creighton University Health Sciences as a recognized leader in the training and development of a multicultural healthcare workforce that serves to reduce health disparities in underserved and diverse communities through research, culturally proficient education, community interaction and engagements.
Welcome to HSMACA! We invite you to examine Creighton's core values which include the inalienable worth of each individual and appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity coupled with service to others. Recruitment of a diverse student body is a top priority for us.
At Creighton University, the office of Health Sciences- Multicultural and Community Affairs(HS-MACA) embraces the diversity that each of our students contributes.
Since its inception in the year 2000, HSMACA has served as the foundation for a variety of pipeline programs. The programs serve students from the 4th grade to college and health science professional schools by providing educational opportunities and exposure that allows the diverse students to be competitive applicants for health science schools. In addition, our programs provide information to the young individuals so that they will consider the health professions as a career of choice in the future.
Welcome and we look forward to hearing from you!
