Allied Health professions are the support professions distinct from physicians and nurses that work together to make the health care system function. At the Associate's level, allied health professionals are often the licensed professionals involved in the delivery of health services. Allied health professionals pursuing a Bachelor's degree (and beyond) are those seeking additional responsibilities in leadership, communication, education, or research during their careers. The Allied Health track complements the BSHS core with courses covering diseases, drugs, and cross-cultural areas, such as end of life ethics and gerontology. Courses in public health, disaster management, and occupational safety and health in the health care environment round out this track to help students comprehend and address the complex and inter-related issues surrounding the communication and delivery of related health care services at local, regional, and national levels.
The Allied Health specialization serves as an umbrella degree for students seeking to complete their bachelor's degree.
This program is also open to students who have an AAS, AS, or AA degree.
