Allied Health – Albright College

Allied Health

Using evidence-based practices, allied health medical professionals work to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases and illnesses. They support the nation’s health care systems by administering leadership and management principles. An Allied Health major can prepare for a professional career in numerous fields, such as occupational therapy, medical technology, or radiology. Some allied health roles involve direct patient contact whereas other roles are more supportive behind the scenes.

A student could earn two degrees within five years (4+1), starting with a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health from Albright College and ending with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from an Accelerated Career Entry (ACE) program.

The Allied Health major is aligned with the minimal requirements needed to enter Drexel’s Accelerated Career Entry (ACE) program. These requirements also allow students to apply to ACE programs at other institutions. Students would earn a BS in Allied Health and would also be able to apply to other health related graduate programs.
