Allied Health Leadership Online Completion Program
Obtaining a B.S. degree from ETSU will led to a life-changing career opportunity
The BSAH online degree completion program in Allied Health Leadership is designed for healthcare providers in medical fields such as medical assisting, medical laboratory technology, cardiovascular technology, physical therapy assistant, and occupational therapy assistant to obtain a baccalaureate degree by using more of their credit hours than normally transfer to a four-year institution.
In this program, students will build on their existing knowledge and enhance their communication, critical thinking, problem solving, research, and leadership skills. The program is extremely flexible in order to accommodate working health care providers and offers enrollment throughout the academic year (fall, spring, and summer semesters).
Most four-year universities do not allow a majority of allied health credit hour transfers from community colleges, but we are not like most universities. ETSU gives A.A.S. graduates the opportunity to transfer allied health professional course credit hours from a community college.
Contact Kay Benincasa to have your transcript evaluated to see how many bridge credits you can receive.
