Allied Health Programs
Our Allied Health education programs provide training for individuals who want to work in healthcare, but not as doctors or nurses. These programs provide training across a wide range of healthcare-related fields, including medical imaging science, medical technology, clinical laboratory science/laboratory technology, and radiology technology. Students in these programs typically take classes in subjects such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and medical ethics, as well as receive hands-on training in a clinical setting. The lengths of these programs vary, but often can be completed in two to four years, and lead to an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, or to a certificate.
The goal of Allied Health education is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions in hospitals, clinics, private healthcare practices, and other healthcare settings. Graduates of our Allied Health programs are eligible to obtain licensure and take certification exams in their chosen field (as applicable) because our programs are all nationally accredited.
