Allies to Patients and Other Health Professionals

The School of Allied Health was created to meet the growing need in the health care industry by training competent professionals with industry knowledge, practice, and spiritual truths. At Regent, “Christian leadership to change the world” is more than just a slogan. We are proud to be a part of the plans that God is laying out for each student who is called to a career in allied health.

The School of Allied Health seeks to develop and prepare students for ethical and effective servant leadership in an ever-changing health care environment. The healthcare management programs at Regent University engage future leaders to produce a legacy of scholar-practitioners who add value, service, and influence to their teams, invest in their communities and help shape the integrity and effectiveness of the healthcare organizations they serve. The healthcare management programs strive to graduate students who exhibit a service-oriented leadership attitude that focuses on value-based healthcare delivery systems. These students are taught to define healthcare delivery needs, integrate theory with practice for effective management of healthcare services, address complex ethical issues, and think and act strategically in a dynamic and complex healthcare environment.

Allied health is a group that encompasses the various health disciplines aside from medicine and nursing. According to the Association of Schools Advancing Health Professions (ASAHP), “allied health professionals are involved with the delivery of health or related services pertaining to the identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases and disorders; dietary and nutrition services; rehabilitation and health systems management, among others.”1 Allied health professions include dentists, physical therapists, dietitians, and more.
