Events on Health Care Hosted by Lakeland Community College

Lakeland Community College in Kirtland is hosting several free events this spring to introduce prospective students to exciting careers in health care. With 21 health programs on offer, the college is showcasing various cutting-edge and high-growth programs through 11 events taking place between now and April. The highlight of the season will be the Health Programs Open House on April 4 from 3:30 to 6 p.m., where attendees can learn from professionals about careers in direct patient care and behind-the-scenes administrative or laboratory work.

Prospective students can also attend individual sessions for programs such as health information management/medical coding, histotechnology, medical assisting, occupational therapy assisting, and surgical technology. These sessions provide an opportunity for students to speak directly with faculty and identify their field of interest.

At Lakeland’s Health Technologies (H) Building, students will find state-of-the-art equipment, including breathing manikins, a mock operating room, hospital beds, and a life-size ambulance simulator. Regina Prosser, the dean for health technologies at Lakeland, emphasized the outstanding job placement rates for degree and certificate earners in the college’s health programs.

In addition to providing accessible training for high-demand careers, some programs at Lakeland place students into the workforce in as little as eight weeks. With demand for health care workers continuing to increase, Lakeland offers an excellent opportunity for prospective students to kickstart their career in this growing field.
