Vision Statement

The health care industry is an ever-changing landscape, requiring those in leadership positions to navigate complex issues associated with patient care, operations, change management and public policy, to name a few. Allied health professionals comprise approximately 60 percent of the total health care workforce, and together provide the fundamental framework critical to the success of the American health care system. Students jointly pursuing education in an allied health profession and in business are uniquely prepared not only for health care practice, but also for taking on key decision-making roles in health care organizations.
