Siena’s Allied Health Professions Advisor, Eileen Martino '85, assists Saints in taking the right steps to prepare for a career in the allied health professions. Allied Health Professionals provide therapeutic, diagnostic and preventative treatment in a wide variety of patient care settings — including more than 100 distinct occupations, exclusive of physicians and nurses.
Students will work one-on-one with the Eileen to get answers to their questions, explore a career path that matches their passion and goals, and help to ensure they complete the prerequisite courses and application materials required for acceptance into the allied health professions.
Students have both an academic major advisor and our allied health advisor to ensure successful completion of both the major requirements, as well as for the requirements for allied health graduate school applications.
Typical required courses for many of the Allied Health Graduate programs:
- General Biology 1 and 2
- General Chemistry 1 and 2
- General Physics 1 and 2
- Human A and P 1 and 2
- Introductory Psychology and Sociology
- English Composition
The minimum requirements for allied health programs vary a great deal. Be sure to search specific schools of interest directly for specific program requirements.
Students often choose a major in our School of Science, but any major is possible as long as you meet the prerequisite requirements for your health professions program of interest.
