Education and Training Opportunities in Health Care
Thursday, January 14, 2021
So you’ve heard time and time again about how an entry level position in health care can be a springboard to a new and fulfilling career, and that is true. Health care is one of the few occupations where you are limited only by your own personal goals in life. So I wanted to take this opportunity to share information about the education and training opportunities that exist to help you begin your journey as a health care professional.
Health care for youth and young adults
Not sure if health care is the occupation for you? There are many opportunities to take health care for a test drive before committing to it as a career. At the Exploring Potential Interests & Careers (EPIC) event in early 2020, more than 3,300 students from 27 schools in Central Minnesota had a hands-on opportunity to sew stitches, identify heart attack symptoms, and learn more about the many employment opportunities in health care for them. The event was so successful that other regions, including Northeast Minnesota, have been meeting regularly to plan a similar event dedicated to health care in their region.
