About Us
Healthcare Career Connections is an eight-week career readiness program designed to prepare high school graduates (ages 17-21) for full-time employment in the healthcare industry. Students enrolled in the program have passed a drug test, secured all the necessary clearances for healthcare employment, completed HIPPA training and are BLS CPR certified.

Part 1
During the first four weeks, students are engaged in discovering career pathways in Dental Assisting, EMT/Fire Academy, Health Related Technologies, Health Information Technology, and Medical/Clinical Assisting. Additionally, students are given skills assessments while learning workplace skills, participating in mock interviews and preparing a professional resume.

Part 2
During the second half of the program, students are engaged in a paid work experience with the goal of gaining an understanding of the inner workings of a healthcare office. Participants will work 20 hours per week and be paid $9.00 per hour.
