Allied health professionals make up about 60% of the health care workforce!


The School of Allied Health Professions is committed to academic excellence.

Allied health professionals comprise approximately 60 percent of the total health care workforce and, together, provide the fundamental framework critical to the success of the American health care system. Even so, there are growing workforce shortages in virtually all allied health fields.
