Allied health sciences professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and audiology experts, support and increase the efficiency of nursing and medical teams. There are more than 5 million allied health sciences professionals in the U.S., and more than 200 allied health sciences careers. Because of the country’s population, cost control and advances in technology, allied health care professions are expected to see continued growth.

With campuses in Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland and Odessa, the school now serves more than 1,300 students enrolled in 18 degree programs at the doctoral, masters and baccalaureate degree levels.
