Programs in Allied Health offer students interested in healthcare fields the opportunity to gain skills and employment within a short period of time.
Many students in Harford's Allied Health programs work while they complete their studies. They are able to advance their careers as they progress through the programs. Several programs allow students to stack their earned credentials and use that knowledge and experience toward earning a nursing degree.
As the population gets older, healthcare needs expand, and complex technology increases, the demand for qualified healthcare providers is expected to increase. Harford's allied health programs provide career pathways for students to enter the healthcare field, serving as stepping stones to more advanced opportunities.

Many allied health programs have essential technical standards that include physical abilities and behavioral characteristics necessary for successful completion of the program, with or without reasonable accommodations. Technical standards are non-academic requirements of the program that you must be able to master to participate successfully in the program. You should carefully review the technical standards for the individual program and ask questions if you are not familiar with the activities or functions listed. You must decide if you have any limitations that may restrict or interfere with satisfactory performance of any of the requirements. It is ultimately your responsibility to meet these technical standards. You should consult with the allied health coordinator to discuss any individual situation if you may not be able to meet these essential performance requirements. You may also contact Disability Support Services for more information on reasonable accommodations.
