Consortium for Healthcare Education Online
Allied Health is expected to be one of the largest areas of employment in the coming decades, and employers are anticipating a large gap in technical talent. As a result of this growing demand for allied health professionals, community college programs across the country are filled to capacity. The newly created Consortium for Healthcare Education Online, "CHEO" alliance has been tasked to address these gaps.The CHEO Project is in place to help community college students develop the skills needed to secure viable and sustainable employment in the allied health fields. In partnership with Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) and North American Network of Science Labs Online (NANSLO) the CHEO Consortium will introduce technology in introductory level science courses using open source software and a robotic interface which will allow students to remotely control actual lab equipment. The Workforce and Employer Partners will work closely with employers within the health care industry to identify areas of opportunity for our students.
