“The PhD in Health Professions Education will train future faculty members who can teach and mentor students in a variety of healthcare fields. This will ensure that we will have a strong pipeline of qualified healthcare professionals and can attract students into our region to receive an education and hopefully remain in our community once they have completed their degree.” Lloyd Winnecke ’82, Mayor of Evansville

“I commend the University of Evansville for its innovative solutions in addressing the healthcare workforce's significant challenges. The Health Professions Education program is particularly impactful in addressing faculty shortages in nursing, social work, physical and occupational therapy, and physician assistant science among others. In addition, the program enables academic partners to increase class sizes and produce more healthcare professionals to serve the community.”Shawn McCoy, Chief Executive Officer of Deaconess Health System
