What is Allied Health?

Allied Health forms the spokes of the dynamic wheel of health care, one of the nation's fastest growing industries. The term "Allied Health" was coined to group together diversified professionals who perform essential work in health care and, at the same time, to distinguish them from those in medicine, nursing and dentistry. Allied Health consists of a variety of professions, including Physiotherapy, Medical Imaging Technology, Lab Technology, Speech and Language Pathology, Audiology, Optometry, Dental Hygiene & Dental Technology etc.
Allied health sciences are no longer subsidiaries of main stream medicine, but are considered as an important adjunct in the health care industry.
