Welcome to the Cabrillo College Allied Health Programs

Find Your Allied Health Career at Cabrillo

You can choose from a variety of exciting health care career options including Dental Hygiene, Medical Assisting, Nursing, and Radiologic Technology. Each department features a rewarding curriculum; experienced and caring faculty; and modern real-world equipment and facilities. Our graduates are in high demand. A shortage of qualified health care professionals has created a great need in the health care industry and is causing wages and benefits to increase significantly.

The Allied Health Occupations at Cabrillo include four areas of study. Please visit the program pages for specific application requirements and information on how to apply.

Please note: In order to apply for the Dental Hygiene, Nursing and Radiologic Technology Programs, it is required that all science prerequisites (BIO 4, BIO 5 and BIO 6) be completed within six years of application to the programs. Applicants are permitted to repeat prerequisites for a better grade provided the course was completed more than six years ago. A repeat petition must be signed by the Dean of the Division in which the course is offered before the course can be repeated.
