About HPN

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.

Where we've been, and where we're going.

When Health Professions Network visits a site for one of our two annual meetings, we bring association executives interested in bringing further meetings to the hotels, conference spaces, and venues in the area.

It's simple - these visits are a benefit to our members - and our members are a benefit to the sites we visit.

We've been to some pretty spectacular places - some that surprised us, and some that lived up to already high expectations.
