Allied Health Technologies 045

Coordinator:Douglas W. Morrison, 973/353-1268

The major is offered at NCAS. A major in allied health technologies (AHT) leading to the bachelor of science degree is offered jointly with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Health Related Professions in Newark (UMDNJ-SHRP) and the Department of Biological Sciences at Rutgers-Newark. Graduates become members of health care teams contributing to the diagnosis and treatment of disease in a variety of health care, industrial, governmental, and educational settings.

AHT majors take three years of course work at Rutgers-Newark and must apply to the senior clinical year at UMDNJ-SHRP beginning the fall term of their junior year through a separate admissions process. Admission requirements for the senior clinical year include a cumulative grade-point average of 2.75 and grades of C or better in all prerequisite core science courses taken at Rutgers-Newark. Students may specialize in diagnostic medical sonography, vascular technology, nuclear medicine technology, or respiratory care. For more information about the joint program, contact Michael Teters, M.S.,at UMDNJ,908/889-2449,, or the undergraduate coordinator at Rutgers-Newark.

Course requirements to be taken at NCAS and at UMDNJ-SHRP for the four options are as follows:
