Healthcare is a dynamic and rapidly evolving business, especially due to the rise in our retirement-aged population. Today's longer life expectancies increase the management of multiple chronic illnesses, which increase the financial burden on our already strained healthcare industry.
Here at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, we are responding to the needs of the healthcare industry by offering diverse and innovative programs in allied health. We offer a world-class education with hands-on experience and the support you need to have a successful career in dietetics, health information management, health services administration, and pre-dental hygiene. These professions offer a wide variety of employment opportunities, areas of specialization, and upward mobility in today’s healthcare field.
