Program Description

When illness threatens the well-being of yourself or a loved one, nothing can be more comforting than the knowledge and expertise of a qualified healthcare professional. People in the health sciences work to prevent, diagnose, and treat illnesses and injuries. Some work with specific tissues or fluids, like phlebotomists, while others, like morticians, work with human remains. If you value helping others, and you enjoy science classes, consider a career in Healthcare.
