Lakeland Community College is hosting a series of free events this spring to showcase its various cutting-edge and high-growth healthcare programs. The college is offering 11 events through April, with the highlight being the Health Programs Open House on April 4 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. During the open house, attendees will have the opportunity to tour Lakeland’s Health Technologies (H) Building and learn from professionals about careers in direct patient care and behind-the-scenes administrative or laboratory work.
In addition to the open house, Lakeland is 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 and identify their field of interest.
Health program classrooms at Lakeland 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, the dean for health technologies at Lakeland, emphasized the outstanding job placement rates for degree and certificate earners in the college’s health programs. With a total of 21 health programs offered at the college, these events provide an excellent opportunity for prospective students to explore their options and take the first step towards a rewarding career in healthcare.
