You may be wondering about:

  • What is an Allied Health Professional?
  • What a pathway to becoming an Allied Health Professional could look like.

Let’s Go Rural – How Do I Get There? Allied Health

May 24th, 2022 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

A virtual conversation about individual experiences, personal journeys, and important information about journey to health careers that can see students like yourself in the field in as little as two years out of high school.

These jobs may be rewarding in and of themselves, or a pathway to other options, and include careers such as an OT/PT/SLP Therapy Assistant, and/or Respiratory Therapist.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear from rural health care providers working in or with experience in these positions, who can talk about their journey and how they got there
  • Learn what colleges might be looking for in an admissions application
  • Connect with knowledgeable folks from Alberta Health Services in their Talent Acquisition team who can speak to what Allied Health is and why rural is the place to be.

This free interactive Zoom session is available only to rural Alberta high school students (school must be located in a town with a population less than 15,000).

We will email you the zoom link prior to the session date/time.
