Health Occupations


Program Description


The Health Occupations Program provides students an opportunity to explore health care as a career field.  In addition to coursework at CACC, students will gain practical work experience at Calhoun County Medical Care Facility, Heritage Assisted Living Facility and various other medical facilities in the community.  Students explore careers in bio-medical engineering, forensics, dental science, pharmacology, veterinary science, therapeutic services and medical imaging.  Unique to this program is the opportunity for ten seniors to be enrolled into Kellogg Community College's CNA program the summer following their graduation with expenses covered by the CACC.
