RIT is building the new Clinical Health Sciences Center, which will be home to the College of Health Sciences and Technology, a primary care clinic—to be run by Rochester General Hospital—and the recently announced Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition.
“The Clinical Health Sciences Center will be more than a beautiful addition to the campus,” said RIT President Bill Destler. “It will move the RIT & RGHS Alliance forward in its goal to impact the future of health care.”
Construction began in April on the 45,000-square-foot facility expansion at the north end of the Louise M. Slaughter Hall. The Clinical Health Sciences Center is scheduled to open in fall 2015.
Often when the topic of jobs in health care comes up, people immediately think of traditional occupations such doctors and nurses. But it’s important for students to realize there are many other options for working in the health care field. On November 12, the NTID Outreach Consortium and the NTID Center on Employment hosted a panel of four RIT/NTID alumni who shared their paths to careers in health care in non-medical occupations.
Nearly 50 students filled NTID’s Student Development Center to learn about employment options in the fast-growing field of health care. Students learned about the growing need due to the expansion of the health care industry as the U.S. population ages. It’s estimated that by 2022, there will be 5,000,000 jobs in the healthcare field.
Garth Arnold, applications integration programmer at the University of Rochester Medical Center here in Rochester; Aaron Bosley, application developer at Highmark in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Shentara Cobb, administrative assistant at St. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky; and Camille Ouellette, lecturer in the Department of Science and Mathematics here at NTID, all shared information about their majors, co-ops, job searches and employment experiences with students and other visitors.
In terms of getting a job in this, or any field, and being successful, the panel offered these suggestions:
- When at work, be a team player.
- Network, network, network to get to the job you want.
- Cultivate relationships with professors on campus; they can connect you with valuable resources.
