Health care jobs represent about 11% of all jobs in New York City, and many of the fastest growing occupations are projected to be within the healthcare industry. Hospitals are the largest employers of NYC health workers, accounting for about 43% of all NYC healthcare jobs. Employment in home health care, ambulatory care, community health centers and nursing homes has increased significantly.

CUNY’s degree programs are growing to meet this need. Passage of the Affordable Care Act is accelerating ongoing changes in the healthcare delivery system.. The University works closely with the healthcare industry and its unions to analyze workforce needs to be able to offer the most up-to-date health professions programs.

The Office of Academic Affairs oversees these programs and other special initiatives at CUNY.

Programs

CUNY offers more than 150 undergraduate and graduate certificate and degree programs in health and human services fields, including nursing and allied health. The Office’s Quick Grid provides a snapshot of popular programs at specific campuses. Additional academic programs can be found using TIPPS. Courses are also offered through Continuing and Continuing and Professional Education.

For students in clinical internship placements requiring professional liability insurance, CUNY has procured an insurance policy that provides student professional liability insurance as well as general liability insurance.

Incentive Grants

  • Aligning health professions programs with federal healthcare reform and professional trends;

  • Expanding clinical affiliations with community-based providers;
  • Designing projects that promote inter-professional education and collaborative practice;
  • Increasing opportunities for field-based learning, including transition-to-practice programs.
