Health Care Courses Offered

ELLSWORTH — This summer and fall the Hancock County Higher Education Center will offer courses in health care leading to degrees or certificates in holistic health, medical lab technology, nursing, medical assisting and more.

The courses will be taught onsite, online or delivered to the center via interactive television and teleconference from the campuses of the University of Maine System and Eastern Maine Community College.

Many of the fastest growing occupations are concentrated in the health services field, which is expected to account for one out of every five new jobs created by 2016.

Registration for the 2009 summer and fall sessions is open and ongoing.

For more information about the center or to talk to an adviser, call 667-3897.
