We Need Health Care More Than Ever.
Based on an aging population, and a retiring workforce, the demand for health care workers will remain high for years to come. As the industry of healthcare changes and grows, an increasing number of career opportunities are becoming available inside and outside of the traditional hospital settings. There’s a place for everyone in healthcare!!!!
The Therapeutic Services program, is a two year program that allows the students to experience healthcare through exploring careers and being fully emerged into the world of healthcare.
Students participate in the Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA), a national student organization that provides unique opportunities through competition, leadership development, motivation, and achievement recognition. HOSA members are students interested in pursuing careers in health professions. HOSA is 100% health care!

Our Happy Students
Being in the Therapeutic Services program has taught me to be compassionate, empathetic, and unselfish because there are people that have medical conditions so severe that they have no will to live. I have learned that I want to be that soft voice that says, it’s okay, I’m here or the hand they hold when they are in pain. The clinical experiences that I have received during this course will help me in Nursing School, at Shepherd University. I have learned so many techniques that I feel like an experienced professional already.
