The Certificate of Achievement in Allied Health provides students with the fundamentals of lab practice acumen and lab sterilization techniques that are in high demand in the allied health industry. Using benchtop chemistry, students gain skills in preparing, manipulating, observing, and analyzing materials through the use and operation of sophisticated biomedical instrumentation and technology. Students calculate for molarity, dilution, and simple buffers, which are vital skills and the foundations for routine medical laboratory tests as an allied health professional. Most careers in allied health require education beyond the certificate of achievement. A brief list of career options in allied health includes, but is not limited to: nurse, physician's assistant, sales representative, laboratory specialist, pharmacist, phlebotomist, radiology technician, physical therapist, and respiratory therapist.
Based on 2018-2019 and2019-2020 enrollment data, the estimated completer projection of students to earn the award annually is 40 students.
Chemistry is the study of the composition of matter, its structure, and the means by which it is converted from one form to another. The chemistry program is designed to fulfill the lower division chemistry courses required for transfer to four-year institutions as well as provide students with skills and preparation necessary for employment in chemistry and other related fields. Certificates in chemistry are intended for students interested in hands-on experience and building preferred industry skills to work in the field. The associate of science degree in chemistry is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in chemistry or a related major in a four-year university system.
Students are expected to complete the 17 units for the certificate

San Diego City submitted the appropriate LMI from the COE. The COE recommends proceeding with a new program or program modification because 1) a supply gap exists; 2) entry-level and median earnings are above the living wage; and 3) a high number of annual job openings exist.
