Thank you for visiting the web site of the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions. We continue to make every effort to improve this resource so that it contains a wide range of useful information in an accessible format. A popular feature is "News Across the Professions." Clicking on this item makes it possible to stay abreast of developments in both health and higher education that have an impact on allied health.
Links are provided to member-institutions. Students who are considering the possibility of pursuing a career in one of the allied health professions can use our web site to match their vocational interests with institutions that provide the programs desired. Another set of links is offered to enable browsers to connect directly with other entities, including health and higher education organizations, government agencies, and groups that play a role in accreditation.
As the 21st century unfolds, the Association will place emphasis on activities that aim to enhance: increased funding opportunities for member-institutions to engage in research, leadership training, identification and dissemination of best practices in education, student recruitment into the health professions, and the development of benchmarking tools for scholarship, research, and finance. Additional information about more immediate objectives may be obtained by examining The Strategic Plan which is available on this web site.
