Allied Health Associate Degree Program
Stautzenberger College has prepared people for jobs in Ohio since 1926.
This program is designed for people who already have completed some coursework in an Allied Health concentration or are graduates of a related program.
Our Allied Health program is online, so you could complete all coursework in the comfort of your own home or stop by and use our campus computer labs if you need some assistance. Once you have earned your diploma, you could either start the associate program immediately or wait until you have started working. Some employers may even offer tuition assistance programs!
Job titles could include Accounts Payable, Billing Specialist, Medical Assistant, Nurse Assistant, Patient Services Coordinator and many others.
The Stautzenberger Advantage
We take a streamlined approach to education. Our curricula help students develop a particular skillset and knowledge base for a career rather than receive only a general education. We train you for jobs that employers tell us are truly needed in your community.
We offer affordable programs that typically take less time to complete and have smaller class sizes than those of other schools. The majority of our training is hands-on, creating an ideal environment for many types of learners. We offer on-campus, hybrid, and completely online diploma and degree programs that could provide you with more opportunities for high-paying jobs with room for growth and managerial potential.
We know it's all about a job. Our career services team has done the networking for you with numerous local employers. Prior to graduation, we could help find the perfect job for you. Employers have consistently placed confidence in our graduates' abilities.
