Healthcare Professions

Programs in the Healthcare Professions offer students interested in healthcare fields the opportunity to gain skills and employment within a short period of time.

Many students in Harford's Healthcare Professions programs work while they complete their studies. They are able to advance their careers as they progress through the programs. 

As the population gets older, healthcare needs expand, and complex technology increases, the demand for qualified healthcare providers is expected to increase. Harford's programs provide career pathways for students to enter the healthcare field, serving as stepping stones to more advanced opportunities.

Technical Standards

Many Health Professions 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 successfully participate. Carefully review the technical standards for the program you are interested in and ask questions if you are not familiar with the activities or functions listed. You must decide if you have limitations that may restrict or interfere with satisfactory performance of any of the requirements. It is ultimately your responsibility to meet these technical standards. If you feel you may not be able to meet these essential performance requirements, consult with the Health Professions coordinator to discuss your situation. You may also contact Disability Support Services for information on reasonable accommodations.
