Syracuse, yRepresentatives from several top medical organizations across Central New York will gather in Syracuse next week to discuss the growth, change, and opportunity found in the health care industry. According to The Atlantic, since 2003, the U.S. health care sector has grown more than 10-times faster than the rest of the economy. In addition to being a growth industry, health care is experiencing unprecedented change related to health care reform.
Bryant & Stratton College will host the “Medical Employer Panel” Wednesday, Aug. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m. at its downtown campus, 953 James St., Syracuse.
Representatives are expected from Upstate University Hospital Community Campus, the New York State Society of Medical Assistants and St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, among others. The panelists will discuss their educational backgrounds, training exams, the interview process, day-to-day responsibilities, and local opportunities for entry-level positions.
“Bryant & Stratton College is committed to offering its students a better start,” said Michael Sattler, campus director for the Downtown Syracuse Campus at Bryant & Stratton College. “The ‘Medical Employer Panel’ is one of many ways the College is preparing its students for the future, allowing them to network, learn about the medical industry and help them find jobs after graduation.”
To address health care reform and position students for the future, the two Syracuse Bryant and Stratton campuses prepare students by offering a variety of health care degree programs including medical administrative assistant, medical assisting and health services administration. These programs have the highest enrollment and job placement for the college due to the preparation Bryant and Stratton College provides students and the advancement in the industry.
Over the past five years, the health care programs at the two Bryant & Stratton College Syracuse campuses have achieved a job placement rate of 89.5 percent. Additionally, approximately 15 percent of Bryant & Stratton College students transfer into bachelor’s degree programs at area colleges including Bryant & Stratton College, Syracuse University, Le Moyne College, University at Buffalo, Marist College and Indiana University.
