Health Sciences

Healing others starts at The Lake

Do you like helping people get and stay healthy, have a passion for science and enjoy working with the latest technology? Then you’ll love a career in the health sciences. If you’ve always been the one taking care of people, nursing is not only rewarding, but a rapidly growing career. If you love to organize, you could work as a medical or dental assistant, scheduling appointments and helping patients. Working as a sonographer, you might be the first person to show parents their child at their first ultrasound. You could be on the front line of saving lives as an EMT (emergency medical technician). Or you may work with medications as a pharmacy technician. With so many options and explosive growth, health care is a great field for compassionate, curious people.

Train for real life in real time. At LMC, your class time will balance with lab work, using life-like models for hands-on learning. Your instructors may be industry leaders, but they still remember late nights as a student. So even if you struggle, they help you succeed.

Chart your own path. When you hear ‘health care’ or ‘health sciences’ careers, you might think of a doctor or nurse. But with an array of choices like pharmacy technician, emergency medical technician, sonographer, phlebotomy technician, MRI technician, dental assistant, medical assistant and radiology technician, you can find your best fit for a rewarding, lifelong career.

Get a job - stat. A career in health care is hard work, but it pays off - literally. In fact, 98% of LMC’s health sciences students find jobs when they graduate. No matter which career you choose, you can make a good living in the health care field.
