Founded in 2004 by Jennifer Anglin, Sondra Gerhoff, Nadine Thompson, and Ellen Chiofalo, Orion College (formerly Allied Health Institute) provides educational opportunities to qualified students regardless of geographic area and socio-economic background.
Our founders each brought their own unique experiences and qualifications to the table when formulating the goals and objectives for Orion College. With their combined experience in medical assisting, instructing in medical assisting, technology in education, and business administration within Corporate America they shared a vision to make education available to all. They were instrumental in the development and implementation of the first online medical assisting program in the United States. It is because of their vision that many individuals, who would otherwise have no access to an allied health education, have been able to start a brand new career for themselves and for their families.
As the founders look toward future expansion of their innovative educational approach, Orion College continues its commitment to graduate qualified students. Our programs utilize the latest technology for the delivery of online education and many of these programs can be completed by the working adult without compromising existing obligations.
