Allied Health Program Plans
The Allied Health program at Valparaiso University is designed to prepare students for admission into professional programs. These programs include those for physician assistant, physical therapy, optometry or occupational therapy and other health-related programs. The following information is a guide to students planning to pursue a specific area within the medical field.
Students in these programs must have their schedules approved each semester by their pre-allied health academic advisor. Advising in pre-allied health is handled by faculty mentors in collaboration with a pre-medical advisor, all of whom are members of the Committee on the Pre-Medical Arts. All recommendations to the professional schools are sent out by this committee.
