Northwest Ohio Allied Health Consortium
We are composed of 3 Public two year colleges and one Private University, all of which are not-for–profit. The four partner schools are: Rhodes State College (Lima), Marion Technical College (Marion), Northwest State Community College (Archbold), and Urbana University (Urbana). The consortium combines the resources of the four member institutions to provide more degree options and a seamless educational experience. Students complete a degree in an allied health program offered at a consortium institution by attending the institution closest to the student. For example, if a student wishes to become a respiratory therapist but the local community college does not offer this degree program, they do not have to engage in an arduous commute or look to an alternate career. This project seeks to serve rural communities better by increasing access to a broader spectrum of Allied Health Education opportunities so that smaller healthcare systems can meet the need for Health Professional employment with local citizens.
