Welcome to the School of Allied Health

Allied health professionals are involved with the delivery of health or related services pertaining to the identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases and disorders, rehabilitation, and health systems management, among others.

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. In addition to the Certificate and Degree educational programs, Allied Health also offers continuing education opportunities for experienced professionals who are in need of a refresher course or looking to expand their earning potential in the job field.
