Multi-Skilled Healthcare Certificate
This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek and Springfield locations.
The Multi-Skilled Healthcare certificate program is designed for individuals who are currently working in healthcare or who wish to enter the healthcare field. This program provides an introduction to the healthcare environment and provides training in more than one healthcare skill in order to meet the ever changing needs of the healthcare delivery system. Upon completion of this certificate students will have the skills needed to obtain employment in a variety of healthcare settings.
Students complete core courses and select courses from different specialty areas. The flexibility of the program allows students to choose specialty courses that meet their individual interests and needs. Many of these specialty areas have national certification or state licensure. Students who complete these specialty courses will be eligible to take appropriate certification or licensure examinations.
Courses within this program can also be taken by students in other degree or certificate programs and by healthcare professionals who wish to expand their knowledge and skills and/or increase marketability for employment.
Many of the courses within this program also meet course requirements for a variety of the College’s associate degree programs. Students who wish to complete an associate degree may also choose the Associate of Technical Studies Multi-skilled Healthcare option and select courses which match their interests and/or career goals.
