Ohio University-Chillicothe, Ohio University-Lancaster, and Ohio University-Southern offer a two-year program of study in Health Technology leading to an Associate of Applied Science degree. This program is primarily designed for students who have completed an allied health course of study and have been certified to practice in their fields. The program integrates the students’ technical skills with general academic skills necessary to advance in their chosen career areas. Up to 36 credit hours may be awarded for current certification in an allied health field.

Upon completion of this program, students are well positioned to pursue a baccalaureate degree in Health Service Administration or Technical and Applied Studies.
