Allied Health Careers typically refer to careers in health that are outside of nursing, medicine, or pharmacy. While we have many students interested in allied health careers such as Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant, there are numerous other fields that students may wish to explore. Some of these other allied health career paths require degrees and programs available at the associates degree level, and are thus not as popular with current CSU students. However, we do have students at CSU who plan to attend an allied health program – whether at the community college or graduate level – after completing their studies at CSU.
The best explanation and list of Allied Health Careers can be found through explorehealthcareers.org page on Allied Health Professions. One of the most important factors a student should consider when planning to attend an allied health program is that the program is accredited.
Brief descriptions and links to information about the most common allied health professions CSU students inquire about are below.
