Are you tired of just having jobs and ready to build a career? If so then it’s time to invest in yourself and get the training you need to enter the vast world of allied healthcare. Allied Health professionals are integral to the treatment of patients. Even though they work indirectly in the areas of medicine or nursing, they use the same scientific principles as other healthcare professionals, in helping to diagnose, evaluate and treat diseases. Many health services are provided by Allied Health Professionals filling non-nurse and non-physician-based roles. Career benefits include the diversity of roles that are available to you within the profession. Depending on the role, your work environment may not be limited to healthcare facilities. You can also select a career path with direct patient contact or indirect care roles.

We get you trained, certified, and prepared

Athens Institute of Allied Health prepares students to become therapists, technicians, administrators, managers, and assistants who are the backbone of today’s healthcare workforce. As the nation’s population ages and increasingly struggles with chronic disease and disability, as well as healthcare reform, our mission of education premier healthcare professionals has never been more vital.

While many medical programs take from two to four years to complete, we offer certificate programs which can be earned in a matter of a few short weeks. You will notice that our programs are accelerated. An accelerated or shorter program means less cost to the student. We focus on crucial knowledge and hands-on skills so that students spend time learning the things used every day in the healthcare field. Our students receive National Certifications, enabling them to enter the workforce and get started earning paychecks as quickly as possible.

Our experienced instructors personally guide students through the learning process. Our curriculums are developed and specifically designed to give you hands-on experience so that you are better prepared when entering your new career. We work together with local medical clinics, doctors offices, and hospitals, to ensure that our students have choices after graduation.
