With a nationwide shortage of health care workers in virtually all medical specialties, there has never been a more promising time to pursue a career in the health care industry. But with the abundance of medical career options and specialties to consider, many students are unsure of what area interests them most. Genesee's Health Studies Certificate program provides the perfect opportunity for students to explore the wide range of health care career options while mastering basic communication and computer skills. The program is designed particularly for students who have not decided which health care field to focus on, or who have not yet met the academic requirements for admission into one of the College's health career programs.
A required career and educational plan is developed in your first semester to help you identify your health care employment goals and formulate a related education plan. The College's advisement staff and health program faculty will work closely with you to help you achieve these unique goals.
After earning your Health Services Certificate you can easily choose to expand your knowledge base by enrolling in one of Genesee's Associate degree health care programs. Alternatively, you may decide to seek immediate employment in a variety of entry-level positions at numerous health care employers and agencies.
