New Allied Health Students Begin Training

The School of Allied Health Professions welcomed 130 new students this week. These students are pursuing degrees in the sought-after fields of clinical laboratory science, cardiopulmonary science, communication disorders, occupational therapy, physical therapy and physician assistant. Allied health leaders say these programs are getting increasingly difficult to get into as demand increases. This year represents one of the largest enrollments to date. More from their orientation can be found in the video here or from pictures on Facebook.
