Public is invited to tour new health building, learn about programs and jobs in the field
Lakeland is holding a Health Programs Open House & Job Fair Thursday, March 28, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. in the health technologies building, on the main college campus, 7700 Clocktower Drive, Kirtland, 44094.
The new state-of-the-art health building was designed to support interprofessional education (IPE) which promotes collaboration between different health professions to help prepare students for their future careers in health care teams. The new facility is organized by the health care disciplines patients encounter as they are treated before going to the hospital, are transported to and enter the hospital, and are released from the hospital, to include rehabilitation.
Attendees will learn about the many degree and certificate programs offered to fill needed roles at area hospitals and organizations. "Lakeland is concerned with the ever-changing local employment scene, so we work closely with advisory committees. These committees work with the college's educational planners to guard against program obsolescence and help interpret manpower demands," said Dr. Deborah Hardy, associate provost for teaching and learning and dean of health technologies. "In health technologies these advisory committee have identified job opportunities that involve working directly with patients in a variety of health care settings, as well as behind the scenes with computers and software, or in a science or medical lab."
Participants will get to:
• Learn about health-related education programs such as certificates, associate, bachelor's and master's degrees.
• Meet expert faculty and attend information sessions.
• Speak with employers.
• See the new, state-of-the-art health technologies building.
Those who already hold degrees or certificates in health care fields are encouraged to bring a current resume and attend the job fair portion of this event.
