Lakeland Community College in Kirtland is hosting several free events this spring to showcase its cutting-edge and high-growth health care programs. The college is offering 11 events through April, culminating in the 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 and behind-the-scenes administrative or laboratory work.
The open house will take place on Lakeland’s campus at 7700 Clocktower Drive in Kirtland. Although registration is recommended, walk-ins are welcome. 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.
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. There are a total of 21 health programs offered at the college, providing an opportunity for prospective students to speak directly with faculty to identify their field of interest. As demand for health care workers continues to increase, Lakeland offers accessible training for high-demand careers, with some programs placing students into the workforce in as little as eight weeks.
