Welcome to the Office of the Vice Provost for Health

Grand Valley State University is the major provider of health care professionals in the West Michigan area. As we educate the next generation of professionals, we continually strive to offer the most cutting-edge programs and advanced learning opportunities. We do so by collaborating with a variety of institutes, organizations, and businesses to create innovative clinical opportunities for students across multiple disciplines. In the same way the very best hospitals implement a team approach to ensure optimal patient care, we educate students in group situations that provide comprehensive training with real-world implications.
