THE COLLEGE of CLINICAL &
REHABILITATIVE HEALTH SCIENCES
We are excited that you are visiting our website. The college offers some of the fastest
growing and highest demand health-related programs in the therapeutic and rehabilitative
sciences. Our programs have an established, long history of providing allied health
professionals of "choice" to the region, state, and national health care workforce.
The College's academic programs include undergraduate Bachelor of Science degrees
in dental hygiene and allied health sciences with concentrations in allied health
leadership, cardiopulmonary science (respiratory therapy), nutrition, and radiography.
The graduate-level programs offered include a Master of Science degree in Allied Health
Leadership, Clinical Nutrition and Speech Language Pathology; and Doctoral level programs
in Audiology and Physical Therapy.
Located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Tennessee, our students and faculty
are actively engaged in academic, research, and community service projects that make
an immediate impact on the quality of health care in our region. In the college's
short history, our high quality academic programs have brought a national reputation
to the University.
The doctoral program in audiology was recently noted as the 7th best program in the
nation. Likewise, the cardiopulmonary science (respiratory therapy) program received
the national program of the year award in 2007. Similar high academic standards and
outcomes can be found in each of the academic programs offered by the college.
You will find our national and internationally renowned faculty to be highly focused
student success. The faculty are dedicated to bringing real life experiences into
the classroom and clinical setting to enhance the learning outcomes of the students.
We are very proud of our students and the opportunities they have to positively impact
the future of health care. All of our graduates continue to exceed the national average
on their respective professional licensure examinations. Although most of our graduates
elect to remain and practice in Tennessee, those who choose to leave have found success
the country in major healthcare facilities. We invite you to take a closer look at
academic programs detailed on this website. Each program site has the admission requirements,
selection process, and, should you need further information, contact information for
