Allied Health leadership careers are projected to grow 23% by 2025, and because East Tennessee State University allows more transfer credits than most universities, an online B.S. in Allied Health from ETSU can save you valuable time and tuition dollars while helping you move forward faster.
At its core, healthcare delivery is about taking care of people. However, the way we provide patient care has changed dramatically thanks to new technologies, breakthrough treatments and government regulations. ETSU recognizes that allied health professionals have an evolving role in a growing industry and we work to incorporate dynamic technologies into our degree completion program while being aware of changing regulations and the rising costs of healthcare.
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 allied health professionals and offers financial aid options and enrollment opportunities throughout the academic year (fall, spring, and summer semesters). This B.S. degree program in Allied Health is available entirely online, making it easy for students to balance their professional and personal lives while preparing them for higher salary and status categories or for a Master of Science in Allied Health here at ETSU or elsewhere.
Students seeking admission to the Allied Health Leadership concentration must meet the following criteria:
- College GPA of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale (developmental studies grades/quality points excluded)
- Official transcripts and proof of graduation from an accredited allied health Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) or certificate program (i.e. Med Lab Tech, Medical Assistant, OTA, PTA)
- Licensed or eligible for professional licensure in discipline
Program information including curriculum and graduation requirements can be found in the B.S. Allied Health entry of the ETSU Catalog.
