University of Delaware
Healthcare Theatre is a unique interdisciplinary education program at the University of Delaware that develops the communication skills necessary of current and future professionals through interactive scenarios presented by Healthcare Theatre students.
With this transformative approach to education students are trained to portray patients and family members so that health sciences students can practice both technical and interpersonal skills in a safe environment without compromising quality of care.
The program was co-founded at the University of Delaware by Faculty Members Amy Cowperthwait, College of Health Sciences and Allan Carlsen, College of Arts and Science.
