Springboard your Allied Health Career
Rider’s pre-allied health program is not a major. It is an advising program designed to put you on track to achieving your goals of entering professional programs in nursing, physical and occupational therapy, diagnostic imaging and more.
Rider’s pre-allied health curriculum is highly individualized. You’ll work closely with a program advisor to develop a plan of study that will help you complete the prerequisites necessary for admission into allied health programs.
