Allied health is the study of the human body, its structure and function in health and disease. In today's world discoveries and breakthroughs in biomedical science, disease management and control, exercise and sports science, brain behaviour and drug development are being achieved continually through the efforts of those involved in these fields.
Studying allied health at UNE offers you the opportunity to gain necessary skills and techniques to enter this innovative and expanding career field, or alternatively to continue on to further studies.
