    Health: Allied Health Competency Model

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has worked with technical and subject matter experts from education, business, and industry to develop a comprehensive competency model for the Allied Health industry sector. While the model identifies the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for workers to perform successfully in the field of Allied Health, it is not intended that Allied Health workers possess all of the competencies listed. The model is rather a compilation of competencies that can be included as a basis for preparation in an Allied Health occupation. The Health Professionals Network (HPN) and the National Network of Health Career Programs (NN2) provided input and will ensure that the model evolves to accommodate changing skill requirements.
