Announcing a NEW certificate for students!

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, students enrolled in the HSECA Biomedical Technology program may earn a Biotechnology certificate from Precision Exams.  According to Precision Exams, "Biotechnology is designed to create an awareness of career possiblities in the field of biotechnology.  Students are introduced to diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that support bioscience research and practice"  Students that successfully complete the exam demonstrate knowledge and skills in basic research procedures taught in the program.

Mentor Opportunities Abound in the HSECA Biomedical Technology program!

Students in the HSECA Biomedical Technology program have access to college mentors through Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine Pipeline Project.  Students are paired with a GVSU premedical or an MSU medical student one day a week for 8 weeks; essentially "trying on" the role of a medical student.

HSECA Therapeutic Program is now a State of Michigan approved CNA test site!

Students successfully completing the education and training provided by the HSECA Therapeutic program have been eligible to take the State of Michigan CNA exam to obtain their State CNA license but, the exam was administered at a different site.  In 2017, Therapeutic instructors successfully applied to the State to become an approved test site.  The exam, administered through Prometrix, is a two part process assessing both knowledge and skills.  Students may now register to take the exam in the same location they received their training as soon as class is over!
