The eCurriculum Component is particularly useful for colleges that want to have a clone of the program listing on their websites. This component will pull the data from eCurriculum and display that information in the format desired.
This method is much more preferable compared to managing such data on the local sites, since this data will update as eCurriculum is updated. This way, all of the information is stored in one place and will remain concurrent with the official information available on eCurriculum.
The componet has 2 main options, to display a list of all programs in a certain college, choose Full college A-Z list in What to Display. This option will allow you to use the College dropdown to select which college to retrieve data from.
Alternatively, the Selection of Programs option allows you to put PASLA codes into the Programs to Display widget. If you put in only one PASLA code, it will bypass the listing and show only that program.
Chose any of these options to disable columns in the table. By Default the table output for the list includes the following:
Program Name (Cannot be removed)
Program Output Options
The third panel controls the output of the program data. Users have 3 options.
Full Listing will show a preconfigured list of data including the name and description ("What is") of the program, admissions requirements, program details, curriculum, special features and contact info.
Mobile Listing will show an abbreviated full listing, leaving out curriculum, special features, admissions requirements, and some program details.
Custom Listing allows you to choose which sections of the data to show using the Items for Custom Listing widget
With "Full college A-Z list," "Allied Health," and "Mobile Listing" selected.
The bachelor’s degree in health sciences has two levels: the initial level that consists of study in all basic science disciplines, mathematics, English composition, and other areas of general education, and the upper level that consists of study in the applied sciences of exercise, human movement, human anatomy and physiology. Within the upper level, there are two tracks or concentrations: exercise and movement science or physiologic science. These concentrations are well suited for individuals interested in the growing fields of health and fitness, or graduate study in allied health sciences or medicine.
The degree prepares undergraduate college students for graduate studies in the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, physician assisting, chiropractic medicine, dentistry, nutrition, exercise science, biomechanics and ergonomics, as well as other health related master's and doctoral degree programs. (Most licensed allied health professions require a profession-related master’s degree or a profession-related doctorate as the entry degree).
The curriculum also provides students with associate degrees, especially in the areas of allied health sciences, the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree in a related area.
The degree in health sciences is open to all students who meet admission requirements for the UC College of Allied Health Sciences and the Health Sciences Program. Students entering from high school must meet the following criteria:
4 units of college preparatory English
3 units of college-preparatory mathematics
3 units of science
2 units of social science
2 units of foreign language
1 unit of fine arts
2 units of any of the above
Because of the required college coursework in science and math, successful completion of two years of high school algebra, one year of high school geometry, one year of high school chemistry and one year of high school biology is recommended. For students planning on entering the physiologic science concentration, pre-calculus is recommended.
Students who choose not to pursue an advanced degree have career opportunities with their bachelor’s degree. Students meet the eligibility requirements to sit for certification exams through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Through the ACSM, students are eligible for the ACSM certified personal trainer and ACSM health/fitness instructor endorsements. Through the NSCA, students are eligible for the certified personal trainer and the certified strength and conditioning specialist endorsement. These certifications are entry-level endorsements for employment in the private health/fitness industry, health and/or rehabilitation centers. Graduates can also act as exercise supervisors with high schools, universities, or professional athletic teams.
With additional professional experience and education, these certifications can lead to advanced endorsements through both the ACSM and the NSCA.
The UC DPT program provides two special considerations for UC Health Sciences majors. High performing incoming freshman and high performing juniors can apply to the UC DPT program for early admission consideration through the High School Early Admission Pathyway (HEAP) or the Junior Early Admission Pathway (JEAP processes). See the DPT program website for details on these two pathways at http://cahs.uc.edu/departments/RehabSciences/programs/pt/about.aspx.
