Alberta's health care system offers practitioners a dynamic and rewarding work environment. Serving over three million Canadians requires the hard work of many different health care professionals. Physicians, nurses, diagnostic imaging professionals, and pharmacists all work together to provide care to individuals and communities, and to support healthy lifestyles.
In Alberta, a single, publicly-funded, province-wide authority provides most of the care to the public. Alberta Health Services (AHS) manages hospitals, public health clinics and emergency response units, and is also the employer of most health care professionals.
In this section you will find information on many of the health professions that exist in Alberta, as well as the organizations that oversee and regulate these professions. You can also learn about Alberta's world-class health care facilities.
