Clinical Health Science - Degree Overview
The clinical health science degree is designed for certified clinical professionals with a minimum of an associate’s degree or equivalent, providing them with the desired baccalaureate degree needed for professional advancement. Radiography (RAD), surgical technology (ST) and respiratory therapy (RSP) and many other allied health professions are all currently at the associate’s degree level. This degree completes the general education requirements in any baccalaureate degree and complements this with relevant professional courses.
Who Should Get a Clinical Health Science Degree?
A bachelor of science degree is preferred for positions such as a supervisor or program director or to compete effectively in medical supply companies and equipment vendors. Many students and professionals in these fields seek a bachelor of science degree to aid in their transition to management or education positions within their fields. The clinical health science degree meets this need.
There is a shortage of personnel in these health professions and it is likely that many potential bachelor degree candidates are already working in the field. This degree is designed to accommodate students who may be off-campus, practicing at a clinical site. The degree is flexible so students can complete course work that supports their professional goals.
