Hello. I am Dr. Brian West. I'm a Program Director here at South University and I'm here to talk about the Associate of Science and Allied Health Sciences program.

This program gives the student the ability to work professionally in a healthcare environment. It gives them critical thinking skills, communication skills. They learn the principles and theories of working with healthcare professionals and they learn the ethics and professional behaviors of healthcare professionals.

This degree leads students in a couple of different directions. They can obtain a degree in allied health sciences and go to work in the workforce, or they can use the degree that they have to move on into other programs. Maybe after they've been in the program, they might get a better idea of which direction they'd like to head in health services, and they can use the allied health sciences program to lead them in the direction they want to go.

I would advise prospective students to consider the program in allied health sciences. If they are not quite sure which direction they want to go yet in the healthcare field, but they know they have a general interest in healthcare, this is a great program to get them going in the right direction.
