The purpose of the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Health Sciences is to establish a University-level academic leadership position for the health sciences, to centralize academic work in the health sciences, to introduce greater connections to and integration across other non-AHC colleges, and to provide increased support for interprofessional education.
Training allied healthcare professionals to meet increasing workforce demands
The Center for Allied Health Programs includes the Medical Laboratory Science Program (MLS) and the Program in Occupational Therapy (OT). MLS scientists play a crucial role in the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients. OT professionals work with patients whose physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities interfere with their ability to engage in life's tasks.
Offering health professions students the opportunity to connect, collaborate
Also known as CHIP, the Center for Health Interprofessional Programs offers health professions students unique and innovative opportunities to help connect, collaborate, network, and develop with students from other colleges.
