The Department of Health Professions is recognized regionally and nationally for the superior quality of its educational offerings and its contributions to health care, scholarship, research, and service to our community. The faculty is recognized for their excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service in their respective disciplines both within the University of Central Florida and in the global community. Our students learn to be advocates and providers of evidence-based practices in health care settings.

High-quality health care requires the knowledge and talents of many different health care professionals, each of whom plays an integral part in the overall health care team. Practitioners with formal education and clinical training have crucial roles in prevention, diagnosis and therapy. They are employed in many different environments including hospitals, specialized-care facilities, schools, the performing arts, government and more.

Employment in health care occupations is strong and will continue to grow in the coming years driven by the increasing demands of an aging population and longer life expectancy. Working in health care is interesting and rewarding. We invite you to explore the programs we offer to learn about some of the rewarding career opportunities available in health care.
