What is an allied health education program?
Allied health professionals are essential members of the healthcare team who work alongside physicians, nurses, and other specialists to deliver high-quality care to patients. These individuals are the backbone of the healthcare industry, bridging the gap between medical expertise and patient support.
EMTPKY’s Allied Health Education Programs cover a variety of specialties, each catering to different aspects of patient care and medical assistance.

What types of roles do allied health professionals fill?
Allied health professionals play crucial roles in the healthcare industry, supporting and assisting other healthcare providers to deliver quality patient care. Here are some common roles that allied health professionals fill:
Medical Assistants: Medical assistants work under the supervision of physicians and nurses, providing both administrative and clinical support. They may handle tasks such as scheduling appointments, taking patient histories, recording vital signs, preparing patients for examinations, and assisting with minor medical procedures.
EKG Technician: Electrocardiogram (EKG) technicians specialize in conducting and interpreting electrocardiograms, which are tests that record the electrical activity of the heart. They work closely with cardiologists and other healthcare providers to assist in diagnosing heart conditions and monitoring cardiac health.
IV Certification: Professionals with IV certification are trained to administer intravenous (IV) therapy, delivering fluids, medications, blood products, or nutrients directly into a patient’s veins. They are essential in various healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, and home healthcare.
Medical Billing and Coding Specialists: Medical billing and coding professionals handle the crucial task of translating medical procedures, diagnoses, and services into standardized codes for billing and insurance purposes. They ensure accurate and timely submission of claims to insurance companies for reimbursement.
Patient Care Technicians: Patient care technicians, also known as nursing assistants or patient care assistants, work under the supervision of nurses and provide direct care to patients. They assist with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, feeding, and mobility, and help monitor patients’ health status.
Phlebotomy Technicians: Phlebotomy technicians are responsible for drawing blood from patients for various purposes, including medical testing, transfusions, and research. They must follow proper procedures to ensure patient safety and the accuracy of blood samples.
It’s important to note that the specific duties and responsibilities of these roles may vary depending on the healthcare setting, the state or country’s regulations, and the level of education and certification achieved by the allied health professional. Allied health professionals are valued members of the healthcare team, contributing to the overall well-being of patients and supporting the work of doctors, nurses, and other specialized healthcare providers.
