Honors in Allied Health Sciences

The Honors Program in Allied Health Sciences is an engaged community comprised of Honors students, Honors Core Academic Advisors, and Honors Research Advisors. All honors members in the Department promote and support a community of Honors scholarship, enrichment, involvement, leadership, and diversity within AHS.

Our community approach takes advantage of the rich resources available through AHS faculty, follows an interdisciplinary health model, and allows for individualized advising in an effort to promote academic and research excellence. Our students graduate prepared for advanced graduate or medical school training and/or immediate entry into the workforce.

AHS Honors students are valued members of the Department who benefit from their opportunities to work with and learn from faculty experts in a wide range of health and health promotion fields.

AHS Honors Advising

All AHS Honors students are advised by a team of five core honors advisors who work collaboratively to provide quality academic and honors advising and who can help connect advisees to appropriate academic, research, and Honors resources. Honors Research Advisors provide experiential and/or research opportunities and mentorship to Honors students and supervise the final thesis.
