Allied Health Science is a multidisciplinary branch of the health sciences involved with identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases and disorders.
It seeks to understand the body’s dietary, nutrition and rehabilitation needs and to manage health systems.
Allied health professionals include physician assistants, diagnostic medical sonographers, dieticians, medical laboratory technologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiographers, respiratory therapists, exercise physiologists, dental hygienists, and speech language pathologists, among several others.
It is estimated that allied health professionals provide for nearly 60% of all healthcare needs, working with doctors, or as independent practitioners.
