Lakeland Community College in Kirtland is inviting prospective students to explore the world of health care through a series of free events this spring. With 11 events taking place from March to April, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge and high-growth programs in direct patient care and behind-the-scenes administrative or laboratory work.
The highlight of the season will be the Health Programs Open House on April 4 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. This event will allow attendees to tour Lakeland’s Health Technologies (H) Building and hear from professionals about career opportunities in various health fields.
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 opportunity for prospective students to speak directly with faculty members and identify their field of interest.
Lakeland’s health program classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including breathing manikins, a mock operating room, hospital beds, and a life-size ambulance simulator. Regina Prosser, dean for health technologies at Lakeland, emphasizes the outstanding job placement rates for degree and certificate earners in the college’s health programs.
There are a total of 21 health programs offered at Lakeland, making it an ideal destination for those interested in pursuing a career in this growing field. The events provide an excellent opportunity for prospective students to learn more about these programs and take the next step towards their future career in healthcare.
