School of Allied Health Sciences


Welcome to the School of Allied Health Sciences!

The School of Allied Health Sciences (SOAHS) is one of three health professional schools at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU). The school was established to recognize the need to provide access to quality education in a group of rapidly growing health professions. The school is divided into five divisions: Cardiopulmonary Science, Health Care Management, Health Informatics, and Information Management, Occupational Therapy (which offers a Health Science–Occupation and Wellness Concentration), and Physical Therapy (which offers a Health Science–Pre-Physical Therapy Concentration).

Since its start in 1982, SOAHS has experienced continuous involvement in education, practice, and research that has contributed to the strong reputation of each academic division within the school. Its respective accrediting body accredits each division. Overall, FAMU ranks as the number one producer of African-American allied health professionals in Florida. SOAHS has successfully attracted substantial extramural funding. It has received over $4 million from the Department of Health and Human Services to support programs designed to increase minorities and other underrepresented persons in the allied health professions.

After completing their degree requirements, highly trained professionals assume leadership roles in their discipline throughout the state and nation.


Our faculty consists of scholars in their respective disciplines and are dedicated to excellence in teaching and service. Their commitment is to produce highly trained professionals who are qualified to become outstanding leaders and practitioners.
