Students take part in Medical Careers Day
Getting an opportunity to learn about medical programs and degrees
offered by Cowley College, a large group of students took part in the
Medical Careers Day held Tuesday at the Allied Health Center in Winfield.
“It was great to see this many students interested in the allied health and public safety professions,” said Chris Cannon, Allied Health Department Chair/director of EMS Education. “These students saw both the educational opportunities available at Cowley and the future careers that our local workforce has to offer.”
The day consisted of a tour of the Allied Health Center, an overview of the Allied Health programs, and medical careers presentations provided by Butler County EMS, Winfield Area EMS, Winfield Fire Department, Arkansas City Fire Department and EMS, South Central Kansas Regional Medical Center, William Newton Memorial Hospital, and the Pratt Nursing program.
There was also Career Fair booths set up displaying information about specific programs.
“The support we received for this event from our local organizations was outstanding,” Cannon said. “It was wonderful to have every local hospital, EMS service and fire department represented at the event.”
Students taking part in the Medical Careers Day were treated to lunch at the facility.
