Allied Health Science

If you're thinking ahead to becoming a lawyer, doctor, pharmacist, physical therapist, engineer or one of many other licensed professionals, we offer specific programs that prepare you for the advanced education you will need to complete these programs. We encourage you to speak to an advisor for specifics on degree requirements, options available to you and early admission into professional schools.

When you enter a hospital or doctor's office, you're not just being seen by a doctor. There is a team of many professionals, doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners. In today's medical environment, these individuals are spread very thin; so a new type of professional has emerged, the allied health expert. With a degree in Allied Health Science, you will be able to assist doctors and nurses by walking a line of a practitioner and administrative help.
