    Message from Director

As part of the College of Health at the University of Alaska Anchorage, the School of Allied Health is home to training programs and facilities for allied health professionals.
Allied health programs are specifically designed to prepare graduates for work in rewarding careers in Alaska's rapidly growing health care industry. In addition to instruction by allied health professionals, most programs provide experiential education with students working alongside health professionals in real-work situations.
The School of Allied Health also offers continuing educational opportunities for experienced professionals who are in need of a refresher course or looking to expand their earning potential in the job field.
