Lakeland Community College is hosting a series of free events this spring to showcase the various career opportunities in the healthcare field. The college is offering 11 events through April, including its Health Programs Open House on April 4 from 3:30 to 6 p.m.
During the open house, attendees can tour Lakeland’s Health Technologies (H) Building and learn from professionals about careers in direct patient care, administrative or laboratory work. Prospective students will have the opportunity to speak directly with faculty to identify their field of interest.
In addition to the open house, Lakeland is also offering individual sessions for programs such as health information management/medical coding, histotechnology, medical assisting, occupational therapy assisting, and surgical technology. These sessions provide an excellent opportunity for students to gain a deeper understanding of each program’s requirements and career prospects.
Lakeland’s health programs are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment such as breathing manikins, a mock operating room, hospital beds, and a life-size ambulance simulator. Regina Prosser, the dean for health technologies at Lakeland emphasized that degree and certificate earners in the college’s health programs have outstanding job placement rates.
With a total of 21 health programs offered at the college, prospective students can choose from high-demand careers that place them in the workforce in as little as eight weeks. For more information about these events and programs, visit lakelandcc.edu/health.
