I had a job lined up in my field before I even graduated. I was doing my internship at the agency and the president offered me a full-time position. I think that says a lot about the quality of USF.

The program’s flexible format lets you balance the demands of work, family, and education. All general education and health services courses are offered online (2/3 of the program). Practicums are arranged based on students’ interests and geographic needs.
If you already hold an associate degree in the healthcare field, you can complete the Health Services bachelor’s in 2 years – completely online.
I combined Surgical Technology with Health Services and earned my degree in 3 years. The flexibility of the online courses made it possible. As a result, I have more options for my career and can go into OR management and education positions.
