Welcome to the Department of Allied Health Sciences


A longtime leader in allied health education, our Department continues to grow and diversify with a student-focused faculty and professional staff and a wide range of research interests.

We are committed to our students. Our Advising Center is a welcome and valuable resource.

Opportunities abound for students at all levels to participate in community, interdisciplinary, translational and basic (laboratory) research. Many undergraduates are involved in our Allied Health Sciences Club.

Undergraduate honors students, Master's degree and Ph.D. students have an opportunity to train with faculty in our Graduate Program in Allied Health (GPAH).

Pursue a career in a variety of health professions, consider one of our Internship or Certificate programs, or apply for admission to graduate study in numerous health professions.
