Exploring Health Care Career Paths: Lakeland Community College Hosts Open Houses and Events for Prospective Students

Lakeland Community College in Kirtland is hosting several free-to-the-public events for prospective students interested in health care careers this spring. The highlight of the season will be the Health Programs Open House, which is scheduled for April 4 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Health Technologies (H) Building and learn about programs for direct patient care and behind-the-scenes administrative or laboratory work.

In addition to the open house, there are several other programs hosting individual sessions and open houses throughout the semester. These programs include health information management/medical coding, histotechnology, medical assisting, occupational therapy assisting, and surgical technology. The health program classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, such as manikins, a mock operating room, hospital beds, an ambulance simulator, and more.

Lakeland boasts high job placement rates in the health care industry and offers training for high-demand careers, with some programs placing students into the workforce in as little as eight weeks. Regina Prosser, the dean for health technologies at Lakeland, says that these events are the perfect opportunity for prospective students to explore the health programs offered and to speak directly with faculty who can help identify a field of interest out of the 21 program offerings.

For a full list of events and programs, interested individuals can visit the Lakeland Community College website at lakelandcc.edu/health.
