Careers in health care are expanding rapidly -- are you ready to claim your space?
Health care is a two trillion dollar industry in the United States. Every day, physicians see patients, health insurers process claims, researchers test drug innovations and bio-medical engineers develop new products in need of marketing and training support. For thoughtful, educated individuals, health care offers employment opportunities at all levels of academic preparation in communities of all sizes.
Adrian College is one of a handful of private colleges that has focused on this opportunity.In response, we have organized our many academic and administrative resources in one place, with one job: to advise, educate and support students planning careers in health care.
Consider the following:
- We offer courses to expand your knowledge of health care and its professional alternatives.
- Our course offerings respond to varies student interests in the basic sciences, bio-ethics, health informatics, exercise science, health education, social work and elsewhere.
- Our expanding internship placements help you secure direct patient care experience -- including experiences in Central America and around the world.
- We help you monitor admission requirements at key professional schools, plan, sequence and complete courses they require, and support you throughout the application process.
Some students enter health careers directly from Adrian; some enroll in masters or clinical doctorate programs; and some enter medical, dental, veterinary or other professional school. A great many find their academic and career goals change over time. This is to be expected, and we encourage each student to have a "Plan B."
Whatever your major, you'll be free to tap my 25 years as a health care executive in hospitals, with health insurers and for physician practices. In a way, I represent the person you will face in 4 years as you seek employment or admission to a graduate program. With the support of Adrian's dedicated faculty, my job is to be sure you are prepared to meet that challenge academically, professionally and emotionally.
It would be our pleasure to assist you in realizing your academic and career goals in health care. Please email or call me with questions at an time.
