Qualified health care professionals are essential in
todayís society. Southeastern Techís Health Sciences
Division currently offers degree, diploma and certificate
programs in health care. These programs provide
classroom instruction, as well as laboratory
and/or clinical experiences, to make certain that students
obtain the most current skills in their chosen
health profession.

Students interested in Health Sciences Programs may
obtain admission requirements information from the
Admissions Office. Additional information about the
sequence of course offerings and program costs are
also available in this catalog.

Prior to starting clinical or laboratory training, or enrolling
in courses requiring personal protective
equipment, students must have completed a physical
exam and a #4402 Forensic Drug panel (7) or similar
drug screening. In some cases, a dental exam is also

medical professional liability insurance.

In most programs, students are required to purchase
uniforms; and, in some, laboratory supplies and materials

Special Note: Conviction of a felony could make a student ineligible to take the licensing exam(s) required by the profession upon graduation. Early notification to
the appropriate board is required. Faculty advisors will provide information about this procedure.
