Chamberlain University, an academic institution with a 130-year history in advancing healthcare education in the United States, has selected Toronto-based DVXD as a digital brand and product design partner.

Chamberlain's academic programs combine online learning, a national campus network, and on-site experiential learning with healthcare partners. This approach helps healthcare professionals gain a comprehensive education within a flexible learning structure to suit those already working in the field of nursing.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Chamberlain quickly responded by shifting curriculum completely online from 22 campuses and expanded access to their BSN program - ensuring safe, continued, learning while helping meet increasing healthcare demand.

"Chamberlain University's flexible, diverse and inclusive academic programs are a beacon for educational institutions globally," said DVXD Principal, Derek Vaz. "Given our focus on creating progressive digital experiences for social impact we are excited to partner with Chamberlain, especially given their direct impact to the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Working collaboratively with Adtalem's Product, Data and Engineering teams in their Digital Centre of Excellence, DVXD's work will be led by Design Director Nelson Leung. Prior to DVXD, Leung helped lead digital design for the likes of TELUS and numerous Silicon Valley tech startups.

"Together with the passionate leadership and teams at Adtalem, we hope to empower nurses looking to advance their career with Chamberlain University and, ultimately, impact access to quality healthcare," said Vaz.
