HANCEVILLE, Ala. — Health Science programs with openings still available for the Fall 2017 semester at Wallace State Community College will hold an informational meeting on Wednesday, June 28, at 10 a.m. on the 12th floor of the James C. Bailey Center on the Hanceville campus.

“This meeting gives students who did not get into their first-choice program, or those who want more information about our programs, the opportunity to hear about other options available to them here at Wallace State,” said Lisa German, Dean of Health Sciences. “We have a number of highly-competitive programs that fill up with students rather quickly, but there are other fantastic programs that students may not be aware of that can help them get jobs in the healthcare field, or that can be used as a building block toward getting into that first-choice program.

“This meeting is to let students know they do have options for this fall,” German added. “Rather than thinking there’s nothing they can do for the next year, they have the opportunity to enter other programs that will help them reach their ultimate goal of employment or possibly lead them down a path they hadn’t considered before.”

After a brief overview of each program with openings for the fall, students can meet individually with representatives of each program they’re interested in to get more detailed information. The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about Wallace State’s Health Science programs.

The programs that will be represented at the meeting include: Child Development, Emergency Medical Services, Medical Assistant, Medical Coding, Medical Laboratory Technician, Pharmacy Technology, Polysomnography (Sleep Study), and Therapeutic Massage. Completion time for program range from one to two semesters for certificates, to five semesters for Associate degrees. Not all programs require completion of pre-requisite courses.
