Northwest Ohio Allied Health Education Consortium

What is the Northwest Ohio Allied Health Education Consortium?

The Northwest Ohio Allied Health Consortium is composed of five higher education institutions: Rhodes State College (Lima); Marion Technical College (Marion); Northwest State Community College (Archbold); Clark State Community College (Springfield); and Terra State Commuity College (Fremont).

How it works

The consortium combines the resources of the five member institutions to provide you with more degree options and a seamless educational experience. You can complete a degree in an allied health program offered at a consortium institution by attending the institution closest to you. For example, if you want to become a respiratory therapist but your local community college doesn’t offer this degree program, you don’t have to make the long commute or give up your dream. Through the consortium, you can attend classes close to home and obtain your associate’s degree. You can take general education courses locally and program courses (offered at the distant college) via live video conferencing broadcast while sitting in a classroom at your local college. Your clinical requirements would also be completed at local hospitals and healthcare facilities. You would only need to travel to the distant college for some laboratory work.
