College of Allied Health Sciences' 20th Anniversary 
Interdisciplinary by Design

20 in 20 award winners

20 years: From Idea to Expansion 

The idea for a College of Allied Health Sciences arose from a task force that recognized that UC had disciplines related to healthcare scattered across the university. The disciplines were all training students for professional programs in health, held practicum experiences or clinical rotations so that students were able to apply their knowledge and most had a licensure or credentialing component to their field.

In 1998 the college was officially formed. It is the youngest college at the University of Cincinnati today. A collection of health disciplines came together from across the university, relocated to French East and chose its new name, the College of Allied Health Sciences. 

Since becoming a college we have started numerous programs (both online and on-campus) to fit the needs of of the current healthcare environment. The School of Social Work also came to our college in 2010 and the athletic training program came to our college in 2016.

The College of Allied Health Sciences will be celebrating it's 20th anniversary during the 2017-2018 school year.
