Allied Health Department





Allied Health Department

The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office has mandated that all Directed Clinical Practice (DCP) hours meet the same criteria as laboratory hours. This change has resulted in an increase in the units for some of the Directed Clinical Practice (DCP) courses offered through our Allied Health Department.  Program changes will be reflected on each program page.

There are seven programs within Allied Health department: Animal Health Technology (ANHL), Dental Assisting (DENA), Health Information Management (HIMS), Health Information Technology (HEIT), Medical Assisting (MEDA), Phlebotomy (PHLB), Physical Therapist Assistant (PHYR) and Radiologic Technology (RADT). For more information about each, please use the links to the right.

ATTENTION ALLIED HEALTH STUDENTS: You must complete the following required training prior to starting your DIRECTED CLINICAL PRACTICE (DCP) or Work Experience. Please complete the training prior to your program orientation and bring verification of completion to your program orientation. Please click the link below.
