We thank everyone for cooperation and understanding as we continue to keep the line of communication open with our students.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CAHE’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
This is a reminder that New York State currently has a travel advisory. The current travel advisory can be found HERE. Students who travel may not enter the building, participate in lab and/or clinical rotations without meeting the current travel advisory. Thank you.
CAHE will continue with the current method of instruction for all Winter 2020 classes. Labs and Clinical rotations will continue to require in-person attendance, while didactic instruction remains online in both a synchronous and asynchronous format.
To the CAHE Community:
As an institution focusing on preparing essential healthcare workers to serve in the allied health field, Center for Allied Health Education continues to monitor the rate of infection of COVID-19.
Due to the recent spike in cases of COVID-19 in our geographic area and the rise in cases experienced by educational institutions across the country as students returned to campus, out of an abundance of caution CAHE is reinstituting a policy of limiting student presence on campus to essential activities. Effective immediately, all didactic lectures and exams will be delivered remotely to minimize the possibility of community spread from exposure to fellow students and staff. Lab classes will continue to be held on campus with CAHE continuing to conduct lab sessions in a reduced staff-to-student ratio while adhering to CDC and NYS DOH COVID-19 guidelines.
All students and staff are required to adhere to the Center’s COVID-19 guidelines, which have been developed, and are continually updated, by our medical advisors to reflect the latest guidelines established by the CDC and NYSDOH. These guidelines focus on preventing the spread of the disease by proper hand washing, social distancing, wearing a face-covering that covers the nose and mouth, and eye protection (as indicated). In addition, students and staff must complete COVID-19 screening upon entering the building. Students can find the COVID screening form by visiting www.cahe.edu/screening.
We are all in this together. Patience with each other and flexibility in adapting to the changes needed in addressing COVID-19 will help ensure our individual and collective safety and success. Be assured our priority is to protect the health and safety of our students and staff while ensuring the continuity of the education of essential healthcare workers.

Center for Allied Health Education (CAHE) has moved all didactic courses for ALL programs to a hybrid/online learning format. Lectures are delivered in a live, virtual, online classroom. Practical labs occur on campus, following CDC & NYSDOH guidelines. Clinical rotations take place at CAHE’s large network of clinical affiliates.
Our offices are fully operational and our staff is reachable at 718.645.3500 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here, at Center for Allied Health Education (CAHE), we are working diligently to ensure that all students receive their education in an efficient and timely manner in order to remain on schedule (or close to it) for graduation. To further emphasize the importance of your education and the need for skilled healthcare workers, our institution has officially been designated as an essential business by the Governor’s Office.
Despite us being granted the above status, we are firmly committed to continuing to implement our social distancing protocols for the immediate future and have modified the schedule slightly in order to do so.
Please be advised of the following:
- After Spring Break, all programs will begin lab instruction again, using virtual software and systems. There will be no additional cost to the student for these virtual platforms.
- Between May 12th and May 25th, students should be prepared to come to the building for mandatory on-campus labs. Lab hours will be scheduled between the hours of 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM and can include Sundays. A detailed lab schedule will be sent to all students prior to May 1st. Our Registrar Department is trying to create the schedule so that students will only need to be on-campus for a maximum of 3 times over the two-week period of time. A specific COVID-19 protocol to enter the building will be in effect and an e-mail will be sent out closer to the date with detailed information. Please begin to make arrangements to be able to attend.
