Who helps get you back on your feet after a nasty accident or illness? The answer is allied health workers.
Allied health care consists of the professions that sit alongside the more traditional avenues of health, like nursing, medicine and pharmacy. Allied health professionals make up approximately 20 per cent of Australia’s health workforce, and are comprised of a variety of occupations, ranging from exercise physiology through to dietetics.
If you enjoy helping and supporting those in need, have strong interpersonal skills and an ability to relate to others, then a career in allied health might be just what you need for professional wellbeing.
