The Department of Allied Health Sciences offers professional programs in Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Health Sciences and Occupational Therapy. All programs are housed on the second floor of the 1971 building of The John A. Kenney Hall (Bioethics Building). The building provides classrooms, faculty offices and laboratories for both programs. A computer lab is also available for Allied Health students.
In Clinical Laboratory Sciences (formerly Medical Technology), a Bachelor of Science degree is offered at the completion of academic requirements and the graduate is eligible to take a State Board Examination for license (see the section on Clinical Laboratory Sciences for more information). The curriculum in Health Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science degree, which includes the general education curriculum common to all Tuskegee University students for the first 2 years and a multidisciplinary concentration or theme within health sciences the last 2 years of study.
The Occupational Therapy program offers a 5-year, entry-level Master of Science degree after completion of academic requirements. The occupational therapy graduate must successfully complete 6 months of full time field experiences (level II fieldwork) in an occupational therapy program within 24 months of graduation. Completion of fieldwork is required before a graduate is eligible to sit for a national certification examination.
