Study Allied Health Courses Online

What is Allied Health?

Allied health professionals support doctors and nurses in the healthcare industry, by delivering programs that improve the health and wellbeing of their patients. Job roles in this sector include dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, radiographers, pharmacists, paramedics, massage therapists and more.

Aged Care

You’ll help allied health professionals deliver services to older people who want to improve their quality of life.

Residential Facilities

You’ll support the delivery of allied health services in residential aged care facilities (also known as nursing homes) or housing for people with a disability.

Home Care

You’ll deliver services to people in their own home, under the guidance of an allied health professional.

Community Services

You’ll work in a community health clinic or GP practice, to deliver programs that support the health and wellbeing of patients.

Why Study Allied Health?

There’s a greater demand for allied health professionals than ever before, due to the ageing population and increase in the number of older people choosing to live at home. Unlike personal care roles, you’ll work directly with medical practitioners to deliver rehabilitation and therapy programs to clients in residential facilities or their home.

Studying allied health courses online will give you a nationally recognised qualification and an advantage when applying for jobs or securing your position in the market. You’ll enjoy flexible hours and the freedom to work in a range of clinical settings, under the guidance of experienced healthcare professionals.
