Through its mission “We Empower Life”, the OUHSC College of Allied Health is nationally recognized for improving Oklahoma health rankings through innovation and excellence in interprofessional education, research, clinical services and community engagement, addressing prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Allied health professionals make up 60% of the health care workforce. The academic departments in our College are preparing the next generation of audiologists, dietitians, nuclear medicine technologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiation therapists, radiographers, sonographers, and speech-language pathologists.
The College is authorized to offer 21 programs: eight baccalaureate, 12 at the master or doctoral level, and one certificate program. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts growth in the demand of the allied health professions and student interest in our programs is high. Enrollment in our College has increased considerably this year. Our faculty are engaged in nationally-funded research that will allow clinicians in the state to provide the most evidenced-based health care for all Oklahomans.
