Bucyrus seniors explore health technology careers
A group of seniors from Bucyrus High School had the opportunity to learn about health technology careers during a special program at Marion Technical College Dec 17.
Brianna Baird, Taylor Carr, Jahari Dukes, Ni’Georgia Floyd, Katlyn Kegley, Donna Richardson, Alexis Schifer, Haley Thomas, Kylee Tighe, with Career Coach Mrs.Robin Showers, explored interactive health track sessions participating in hands-on skill-related activities.
The sessions included diagnostic medical sonography, health information technology, medical assistant, medical laboratory technology, nursing, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assistant, and radiography.
“The event helped me learn a lot about the Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) program,” explained Katy Kegley. “I got the chance to try out some of the exercises they use on patients.”
“I especially liked the nursing session because it was hands-on,” Kylee Tighe said. “I actually was taught how to inject insulin using equipment.”
All the students felt sessions were beneficial. They were provided with opportunities to try the skills that would be taught at MTC and later utilized in a future medical career.
