This initiative brings five institutions of higher education in Northwest and West Central Ohio into partnership to share existing Allied Health programs. The partner schools are Northwest State Community College, Terra State Community College, Rhodes State College, Marion Technical College and Clark State Community College. Students can enroll in any of these partner colleges while attending their hometown college or university with the help of distance education formats such as live video teleconferencing, webcasting, podcasting and other distance modalities. For example, Northwest State students can take their general education core courses at NSCC and become enrolled in the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Rhodes State with a reduction in travel due to the use of distance education. Clinical education experiences may be available in your hometown as well.
