Native American Health Sciences
Washington State University’s Native American Health Sciences (NAHS) offers almost a dozen pathway and support programs meant to recruit, matriculate, and help Native American students succeed, who are entering into health care fields of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, nutrition and exercise physiology, speech and hearing sciences, clinical psychology, veterinary medicine, and other allied health sciences. Although WSU NAHS is housed on the WSU Spokane campus, we serve students, staff and faculty across our five campuses, and tribes across the Pacific Northwest.
Native American Health Sciences operate the following programs Na-ha-shnee for high school students, Student Mentorship, Native American Recruitment and Retention, and several pathway programs.
The Indigenous Healing Perspectives Certificate is an online educational program taught by regional Indigenous health leaders and educators.
Our office of NAHS and the CNAH are located on the WSU Spokane campus, along the Spokane River, and upon the original homelands of the Spokane Tribe of Indians.
