School renamed to showcase health professions

March 2009

A national movement away from the term "allied health" led to the renaming of one of the five schools of the Health Science Center. The School of Allied Health Sciences is now the School of Health Professions in recognition of its mission. The renaming does not affect existing accreditations within the school. "Respiratory therapists, clinical laboratory scientists and other professionals educated in our school perform indispensable functions in the care of patients. This name is a new way to express that," said Marilyn S. Harrington, Ph.D., dean of the School of Health Professions.
