College of Allied Health Sciences Formed

Cincinnati--The College of Allied Health Sciences has become the University of Cincinnatiís 16th college. The UC Board of Trustees approved the formation of the new college at their March meeting. Andrea Lindell, DNSc, dean of the UC College of Nursing and Health, is the interim dean of the new college, which will be housed on three floors of the Old Shriners Hospital building after the space is renovated.

The new college will bring together programs in speech and hearing; physical therapy; physical therapy assisting; medical technology; nuclear medicine, and dietetics and nutrition education. Historically, these training programs have been scattered throughout the university. The new college will enhance the interdisciplinary learning environment for students and increase the visibility of the programs.

"The new college will increase our ability to attract students and develop collaborative teaching and research relationships with other colleges and institutions," says Dean Lindell. "We will also begin considering adding other health care degree programs, including occupational and respiratory therapy, as well as sports medicine and exercise physiology."

More than 600 students will be enrolled in the College of Allied Health Sciences beginning this fall in graduate and undergraduate degree programs. The new space for the college is expected to be ready in mid-1999.
