You need a high level of concern for the well-being of others, cultural sensitivity and the ability to communicate well. You should be detail-oriented, dedicated and responsible, as well as have a high degree of tolerance for blood, other bodily fluids and odors.

UC Advantages and Special Opportunities

The UC Clermont campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. We are relatively small and our faculty-to-student ratio is low. You will find small class size and personal interaction with your instructors create the ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge. Plus, our tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.

As an allied health student, you will be taking your technical core courses at UC East. It's just a few miles away, on the east side of Batavia, and is a short drive from our main campus. It has plenty of parking, comfy study areas and computer labs available for student use.
