Bachelor of Allied Health Sciences

Allied health may be defined as those health professions that are distinct from medicine, nursing and/or dentistry. Allied health encompasses a broad group of distinct health-care professionals who possess a specialized body of knowledge, training and expertise and who adhere to ethical codes and standards of practice unique to their profession. Allied health care professions employ scientific principles and the best available evidence to inform their practice and health care services provided across the lifespan to manage treat, or prevent acute and chronic disease and health conditions; to promote health and well-being across the lifespan; and to apply administration and management skills to support health-care systems in a variety of settings. The scope of allied health practice may include individuals, families and/or entire communities.
