Medical training programs will be offered at Mississippi College’s Flowood Center starting in October.
The classes include pharmacy technician and clinical medical assistant and more courses will be offered in the future. It’s an effort to “meet the growing national need for certified health care professionals,” says Ken Gilliam, MC’s continuing education director.
“These are programs we feel are in great demand and should be beneficial to the Jackson metro area,” he said.
The medical training classes will include both lectures and hands on labs to simulate real world professional experiences. Students who complete the courses should be qualified to take national certification exams.
“We hope to create entry-level job opportunities for people by providing low cost, short-term training programs in health care related fields,” Gilliam said.
The MC Office of Continuing Education is sponsoring the programs at the center in Rankin County off Lakeland Drive. The building is located next-door to the Flowood Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
MC leaders say they seek to service the growing allied health education and training needs of health care organizations, hospitals, long-term care facilities and corporations.
Pharmacy tech classes are 50 hours and will be offered two evenings per week.
