UC Clermont will host the Allied Health Career Fair on May 19

Students and prospective students are invited to explore the many careers available in healthcare at UC Clermont’s free Paramedic Career Fair on Thursday, May 19 from 4-6 p.m.

Participants can learn about the college’s Allied Health programs, take a campus tour, and attend presentations to:

• Surgical technology
• Physiotherapist assistant
• Respiratory therapy
• Medical assistance
• Public health
• Leadership in Health Care (Bachelor’s).?
Admissions representatives will be on hand to help students start the application process, and financial aid representatives will be available to answer questions. The $50 application fee will be waived for anyone who applies that evening.

Many students believe that becoming a doctor or nurse is the only viable career path in health care, said Associate Professor Brenda Poynter, director of the surgical technology program. In reality, she says, the field is filled with a myriad of options, many of which are accessible after a two-year associate degree.

The average starting salary for graduates of UC Clermont paramedic programs is $45,000. The college has strong relationships with hospitals and other healthcare sites in the area, where students receive hands-on clinical training as part of their training.

“Our graduates are in high demand,” Poynter said, pointing to a 100 percent job-availability rate for the college’s surgical technology program. Surgical technologists work alongside surgeons, first assistants, anesthesiologists and circulating nurses in the operating room. “All of my students graduating this spring have clinical site job offers.”
