As health care reform continues to evolve, allied health care providers will become increasingly important professionals in patient-centered care and disease prevention. Estimates project that growth in allied health professions will grow 19% from 2014-2024 which is much faster that the average for all occupations. In fact, healthcare occupations will add more jobs than any other group of occupations. To meet this need, UCLA Extension offers a variety of cutting-edge certificates and programs to help you enter the field or transition your current job in health care.
Whether you want to help address the current opioid epidemic as a drug and alcohol counselor or work in the fast-paced setting of a university research hospital as a well-trained medical assistant, UCLA Extension can help you realize that goal.
