So many careers have felt the brunt of the recession, but one field that remains strong is health care. It’s true, not everyone is cut out to be a nurse, but have you considered a career in radiography, phlebotomy, surgical technology or medical assisting? Many of today’s hottest careers are in the health-care field, with career opportunities and personal satisfaction unmatched by other professions.

The term Allied Health (or Health-Related Professions, at some colleges) is used to identify a cluster of health professions, encompassing many health careers.  When you work in allied health, you are involved (directly or indirectly) with patient health, and you are regarded as an expert in your field. Some allied health professionals practice independently; others work as part of a health care team, providing continual evaluation and assessment of patient needs. You may also
play a major role in informing the attending clinician of the patient’s progress and response to treatment.

If you’ve considered, but haven’t quite made up your mind which area is the most well-suited for you, then take a look at all of the health care programs LCCC has to offer.  LCCC’s health careers training facilities are state-of-the-art and include a patient simulation center on campus and at our North Ridgeville learning center. Through the University Partnership you can continue on and earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree in several health careers as well.
