What are health professions?
Two major “tracks” for entering Health Professions:
- 2+ & 3+ programs = You spend 2 or 3 years (depending on the program you choose) on the Oxford campus before moving to another campus to complete your degree work. But, you may enter any 2+ or 3+ program with a four-year degree.
Professional 2+ & 3+ Programs include: Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Dental Hygiene, Cytotechnology, Radiologic Science , Medical Laboratory Science, Health Informatics and Information Management, and Medical Technology.
