The Health Professions Network (HPN) is a nationwide collaborative group of organizations representing leading health professions associations, accrediting agencies, and educational institutions, as well as federal and state workforce analysts and licensing and certification bodies.

A wide range of health professions make up the HPN and encompass the majority of approximately 200 different positions in health care, including athletic trainers, clinical laboratory scientists, diagnostic medical sonographers, medical assistants, music therapists, physician assistants, radiologic technologists, respiratory therapists, and more.

The allied health professions are the core of HPN. These fast-growing fields represent about 60 percent of the health care workforce and about 6 million jobs.
