You might be surprised to hear this, but did you realize that there are not very many men in the healthcare field? In fact, less than 25% of all Nurses, Radiologic Technologist, Medical Lab Technicians and Medical Office Specialists are male. At Moraine Park, our goal is to even out the numbers.
Student Highlight: Shannon Cotton
I am the Clinical Services Supervisor at the Fond du Lac Regional Clinic and have been employed with Agnesian Healthcare for 19 years. I am an MPTC Alumnus who began my education studying computer programming and graphic design but switched my focus upon falling in love with health care. I graduated with a Technical Diploma from the Medical Assistant Program and am currently enrolled in the new Medical Office Management program.
Moraine Park’s Medical Assistant, Medical Office Specialist, and Medical Billing Specialist students from all three MPTC’s campuses gathered at the Beaver Dam campus to enjoy an afternoon employment event.
The group of 40 students learned about resume writing and interview skills from MPTC Career and Employment Services, the benefits of professional certification from Gail Luttenberger from the Wisconsin Society of Medical Assistants, asked questions of a panel of healthcare hiring representatives, and participated in mock interviews with representatives from local healthcare agencies.
