  • Yrs 9-12: What is 'Allied Health?' You might have come across the term ‘allied health’, or ‘allied health professional’. But who are these people and what do they do? Simply put, allied health practitioners are trained health professionals who are not doctors, dentists or nurses. Allied health professionals work with people to identify and assess issues and provide treatment, and to support acquisition of skills, recovery and reablement. In many cases, allied health interventions can reduce or remove the need for medical interventions. The allied health sector is extremely diverse with significant variation across and within professions; in fact, there's 21 different categories of allied health professional. Some you would know (eg. Physiotherapist, Chiropractor), and some you might not know of (Perfusionist, Music or Art Therapist etc.) To learn about what career options allied health opens up, including what sort of post-school training you'd need, click here.
