This book is the definitive guide to health care practice in the United States, written for foreign-educated allied health professionals interested in immigrating to the United States, those already here, and those looking to complete their education in the US.

The contributors provide a wealth of insight on how to address the challenges of being a foreign-educated health professional in the United States. Health professionals can learn what is expected of them, how to prepare for the journey to this country, and how to adapt to their new communities. Written at a readable level for non-native English speakers, the Guide presents a comprehensive description of the major allied health professions and a clear overview of U.S. standards of education and practice. Additionally, readers will gain an understanding of their basic rights and roles in the U.S. healthcare system.

Key Topics Discussed:
* Allied health practice in the United States
* The process of entry into the United States
* The U.S. health care system
* Guidelines for entering the U.S. workforce

Most importantly, this book will help foreign-educated health professionals learn how to avoid being misunderstood by others, form enduring relationships with American colleagues, and join them in working to improve the quality of health care in this country and worldwide.
