Mission Statement

The Department of Health Sciences offers a variety of human science, biological, occupational, and certificate programs to prepare students to succeed and be equipped for further studies in many health care professions. We employ a problem-solving approach model. Students are taught the basic principles of scientific facts and theories regarding the human animal. They learn the ability to analyze data or a problem, generate possible solutions, implement a plan, and assess the outcome. With these skills, they are able to incorporate scientific fact with patient care. Most of our teaching professionals maintain outside employment in their field of specialty and are able to share not only their knowledge but clinical expertise.

The Kodiak College CHEO Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, intends to help dislocated workers, veterans and eligible spouses, and under-waged earners develop the skills needed to secure viable and sustainable employment in the allied health fields.

The U.S. Department of Labor requires that grantees receiving funds from DOL offer priority service for veterans and eligible spouses, including widows and widowers, as defined by law, in qualified job training programs.
