The Allied Health Science Department's mission is consistent with the College's mission to provide educational opportunities leading to socioeconomic mobility for students from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds, particularly Hispanics, and African Americans. The programs provide the educational opportunities for entry into the health careers of dental hygiene, nursing, and radiologic technology leading to professional licensure and certification. Our programs serve as a resource for the promotion of health and wellness for the population of the South Bronx and surrounding communities. All programs within the Department of Allied Health strive to promote professional values and ethics resulting in a commitment to life-long learning.
