Department of Health Professions Chair’s Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Health Professions!

Corinne Kyriacou

Over the last few years the Department of Health Professions has seen extraordinary transition and growth. Today we are home to many dynamic programs that prepare students to make a positive and lasting impact on the health of populations. Led by experienced educators, researchers and practitioners, each program maintains a curriculum that is challenging, rigorous, and applied in nature. We believe that a comprehensive education requires both classroom teaching and field experience. All of our programs incorporate some aspect of service learning so our students graduate with both the knowledge and the skills to effectively translate theory into practice.

Our diverse and student-centered faculty are passionate about teaching, developing best practices through cutting edge research, and serving the community. Our faculty are wonderful mentors to our students - readily-accessible and eager to involve interested students in their research and community initiatives.

I am tremendously proud of our department and its vital contributions to the overall mission of the School of Health Professions and Human Services, Hofstra University, and the community at large. I encourage you to browse through our webpages to learn more about our programs and faculty and the breadth of both educational and practical experiences our department has to offer.

Wishing you good health,

Corinne Kyriacou, PhD, MPH
Chair and Associate Professor
