Allied Health is a broad term that covers any health care professional that is not a doctor, nurse, dentist, or pharmacist. Allied health professionals make up about 60% of all health care jobs. (3) Career opportunities range from dental assistants to medical biller and coders to pharmacy technicians. You can expect to work close to doctors and nurses. As the current population begins to age, the need for allied health professionals also increase. A degree in Allied Health can open more opportunities in the health care industry.(3) https://www.aimseducation.edu/blog/allied-healthcare-mean/
