What is allied health?

Allied health is comprised of healthcare professions distinct from nursing and medicine, often in non-patient facing positions.

Allied health professionals are responsible for delivering health services related to:

  • Managing healthcare systems
  • Nutrition, fitness and dietary services
  • Identifying, analyzing and preventing diseases and disorders
  • Health promotion, rehabilitation or administration

Dental assistants, dental hygienists, medical assistants, medical billers and coders, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiologic technologists and cardiovascular technologists can all be considered allied health professionals (among many others).

Allied health is a great career path for those looking to quickly start making a difference in healthcare.
