Healthcare professional programs are comprised of diverse career options where individuals provide health care and support for the public. All programs require individuals to embrace and maintain high moral and ethical values and demonstrate professionalism. All candidates seeking enrollment in a healthcare program are required to complete admission criteria and submit fingerprints for criminal history background checks. Completion of requirements does not guarantee admission to a healthcare program.
Admission requirements and application deadlines can be found at the Admissions Requirements tab on the right side of this webpage or on the webpages of the various Healthcare Education programs.
