Baptist-GT & EMCC to Host Open House for Surgical Technology and Paramedic Programs

10/15/2018


 BAPTIST-GT & EMCC TO HOST OPEN HOUSE FOR SURGICAL TECHNOLOGY, PARAMEDIC PROGRAMS

 

     The public is invited to attend an open house Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. to showcase a training facility provided by Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle that will house East Mississippi Community College’s Paramedic and Surgical Technology programs.

            The open house will take place in the training facility, which is located on the Baptist Golden Triangle campus at 515 Willowbrook Road.

            Classes for both the Paramedic and Surgical Technology programs are expected to begin in January.

            In February, officials with Baptist Golden Triangle approached EMCC about a local need for certified surgical technologists. When officials at EMCC explained there was no space available at the college for a new program, Baptist offered the use of one of their buildings for both a Surgical Technology Program and the college’s Paramedic Program.

            In addition, hospital officials also offered to equip classrooms, supply computers and labs, and provide a mini operating room at the training facility.

            The EMCC Board of Trustees, the Mississippi Board for Community Colleges and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges have approved the Surgical Technology Program, which will be the first of its kind in the Golden Triangle area.
