Health and Wellness Pathway


Healthcare jobs are plentiful – especially in northeastern Ohio, which is home to several large and well-respected hospitals. Professionals in the allied health field report high levels of job satisfaction, great earning potential, and job openings throughout the country in both urban and rural settings.

When you work in allied health, you are involved – directly or indirectly – with patient health, and you are regarded as an expert in your field. Some allied health professionals practice independently, while others work as part of a health care team, evaluating and assessing patient needs while helping to monitor patients’ progress and response to treatments.

Whether you choose to specialize in exercise and fitness, lab sciences, diagnostic services, nursing, physical therapy or one of LCCC’s other Health and Wellness programs, you’ll be well prepared for a successful and rewarding career.
