National Association For Advisors in Health Professions
AOTA participates in the Advisory Council of the National Association For Advisors in Health Professions (NAAHP). The National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions is an organization of over 900 health professions advisors at colleges and universities throughout the United States. NAAHP was established in 1974 to coordinate the activities and efforts of four independent regional associations, so that health professions advisors across the nation could function together and speak with one voice. It has grown steadily from that beginning into an effective national clearing house for opinions of advisors and news from allopathic and osteopathic medicine, chiropractic, dental, nursing, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, podiatric medical, public health, and veterinary medical schools. In addition, NAAHP has established partnerships with health professions schools and their organizations through advisor liaisons and an Advisory Council comprised of representatives from these organizations.
