The Allied Health Department at Alfred State provides students with a strong education in a wide range of allied health disciplines through online and on-campus curricular offerings. Allied Health consists of a diverse range of specialized occupations that fall outside the traditional medical and healthcare professions like doctors, nurses, and dentists. Some careers involve direct care of patients, usually as a member of a multidisciplinary healthcare team, and others involve office work and administration. The faculty and staff bring a plethora of industry experience from laboratories and healthcare settings to their work with students. They share the common goal of effectively delivering the practical and theoretical foundations of disciplines through a rich blend of interactive lectures, informal discussion, meaningful laboratory inquiries, and professional practice or clinical experiences. The department offers students direct use of modern laboratory/clinical equipment in real-world or simulated settings and provides the highest-level virtual laboratory experiences.


Through rigorous course work, exposure to state-of-the-art equipment, and professional practice and clinical experiences, the Allied Health Department prepares students for employment or continuing education in the technical areas of healthcare.


Physical & Health Sciences Building – The Allied Health Department is partially located in the recently renovated PHS Building. Four science-ready lecture rooms are on the first floor with eight laboratories found on the second and third floors. The laboratories are outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation, anatomic models, and the latest application software for teaching and learning.

Agriculture Science Building – The sonography suite is equipped with state-of-the-art ultrasound systems for students to practice competency in effective scan techniques and apply their didactic knowledge.  Students also utilize various ultrasound phantoms and simulation programs, that allow for experience with common and rare pathologies.

The healthcare management and health information technology curricula are completely online programs.
