    Allied Health

    Allied Health professionals are health care practitioners with formal education and clinical training who are credentialed through certification, registration and/or licensure. They collaborate with physicians and other members of the health care team to deliver high quality patient care services for the identification, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disabilities and disorders.

    Lackawanna College’s Allied Health students, including our Nurse Aide and EMS Academy graduates, are trained to be the hands-on caregivers, first responders, and eyes and ears for doctors and nurses. They work directly under the supervision of medical professionals and perform medical testing as well as personal care assistance.
