The increase occurred in most of the college’s 13 departments.

”This growth reflects the college’s ability to help meet allied health workforce needs in Arkansas. We have accomplished the increase through a variety of strategies, including a significant expansion of distance education,” Dean Ronald H. Winters, Ph.D., said.

The program in nuclear medicine technology offers all its “lecture” courses via the Internet. Several other CHRP departments offer one or more courses online, by interactive video, or on compact disk, making them accessible to more students.

Founded in 1971, CHRP offers degree and certificate programs at various levels in 15 professional areas. Graduate and undergraduate enrollment in the professional programs totals about 500 students. Some programs are offered only in Little Rock, but many are available in whole or in part at other locations around Arkansas, including the UAMS Area Health Education Centers or online via the Internet to students in Arkansas and other states. All programs in the college have clinical rotations, which may occur in a wide variety of settings, such as hospitals, clinics, and laboratories.
