Rigorous Programs For In-Demand Health Professions

Pursuing a health profession at UHC allows students to serve humanity and gain a solid career that will be in great demand for years to come.  UHC's respected Allied Health department offers a competitive program in Radiologic Technology, affiliated with Ochsner Health System.  We also offer a general bachelor's degree in Health Sciences that prepares graduates for non-clinical positions in health organizations, non-profits and government agencies.

The high need for skilled allied health professionals is expected to continue for decades to come.  UHC thoroughly prepares students for careers through strong degree programs that offer high rates of job placement and excellent preparation for further academic training in specialty areas.  Our combination of exemplary academics, top-notch clinical training and personalized education remains unparalleled.

Earn A Degree In Health Sciences

This increasingly popular program is designed for students interested in health and medical fields that do not require specialized clinical training.   This degree qualifies students for entry level positions in hospitals or other health practices, non-profits or government programs.  Students have the freedom to choose electives in disciplines such as Business or Psychology to support their areas of interest.  The program also accepts clinical hours in Nursing or Radiologic Technology as electives.

The capstone of the Health Sciences program is an internship, served during senior year and offered through an agreement with the Ochsner Clinic Foundation.  UHC interns work as volunteers in various Ochsner departments.  The purpose is to give students real-world work experience and introduce them to the work of a large medical institution.  If possible, internships are assigned based on student interest.
