Welcome to New Mexico State University Alamogordo Allied Health Programs

Allied Health is a unit of the Career & Technology Division of New Mexico State University Alamogordo. The focus of education in Allied Health consists of courses and programs of study in healthcare that prepare students for an entry level position or career and/or prepares students for entry into a four-year college such as a Nursing or Paramedic program.

NMSU Alamogordo Allied Health offers courses and programs of study dedicated to those choosing an educational pathway in Healthcare. According to the Institute of Medicine, there is a need for all types of healthcare workers. Currently, Allied Health professionals comprise nearly 60% of the healthcare workforce and we will need at least 1.6 million by 2020.

What are Allied Health Professions?

Allied healthcare workers are a segment of the healthcare workforce that deliver services involving the identification, evaluation, and prevention of diseases and disorders; dietary and nutrition services; and rehabilitation and health systems management. Allied health professionals consist of nursing assistants, phlebotomists, telemetry technicians, emergency responders, dental hygienists, healthcare technicians, dieticians, medical technologists, personal care aides, home health aides, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiographers, respiratory therapists, and speech language pathologists.
