Draft Building Design for the Proposed Science and Allied Health Building

 

At the July meeting of the Board of Trustees, the College proposed a new building to house existing and proposed programs in the health sciences. The proposed science and allied health building will house two graduate programs that represent new net revenue to the College in addition to existing undergraduate degrees in Biology, Biomedical Science, Medical Laboratory Sciences, and Athletic Training. 

 

The overall market for degrees in healthcare is projected to grow significantly over the next decade. According to a Georgetown University 2012 Study conducted by its Center on Education and the Workforce:

Between 2010 and 2020, healthcare occupations will increase from 10.1 million to 13.1 million jobs. From 2010 to 2020, healthcare production will increase by over 70 percent, from $1.8 trillion to $3.1 trillion. In the same period, there will be an estimated 5.6 million healthcare job vacancies.

The largest increase in demand will occur in the “professional and technical” occupations, including those such as Physician Assistants and Physical Therapists.
