Allied Health Professions

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 are able to work while they complete their study and can advance their careers as they move through more advanced programs, including the possibility of stacking earned credentials toward the goal of obtaining a nursing degree. 

The demand for qualified healthcare providers will continue to be strong as the population gets older, healthcare needs expand, and technology increases and becomes more complex. Harford's continuing education programs provide career pathways for students to enter the healthcare field, serving as stepping stones to more advanced positions.

Technical Standards

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.
