Here at UIS, the beginnings of the Department of Allied Health (ALH) grew out of the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) degree which began over 40 years. Until recently, CLS was the only allied health profession at UIS but in the 2016/2017 academic year the Exercise Science baccalaureate degree began and has grown significantly ever since. The ALH Department expects to further expand in the 2018/2019 academic year with the addition of a Master of Athletic Training Program once it’s approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Stay tuned for more information on the changes coming up in the Department of Allied Health!
