ST. PHILIP'S COLLEGE ANNOUNCES ADS AND UPDATES TO FREE HEALTH SCIENCES PROGRAM INFORMATION SESSION SCHEDULE

St. Philip's College announced updates to the lineup of its free SPC Health Sciences Program Information Sessions for the 2019 season today. The updates are for the Medical Lab Technician program. The college is also advertising opportunities in its Medical Lab Technician program at the downtown McCullough Ave. and Dallas St. intersection three miles from the college’s 1801 Martin Luther King Drive location. The Medical Lab Technician program at SPC is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS).

The free sessions are where future students of all ages and experience levels begin to learn about 13 of the St. Philip’s College health sciences programs https://www.alamo.edu/spc/academics/programs/ and two of its nursing programs after calling 210-486-2050 to reserve a spot. Sessions begin with overview presentations in the college's Center for Health Professions building at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive and conclude with program-specific tours of the center that offers the newest and most advanced non-military medical training facilities east of the city's Medical Center area. Students learn in the same customized professional training program environment for employees who support and assist the work of doctors and nurses at San Antonio’s second largest private employer---Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio. While information session parking on campus is also free, the college is also served by VIA buses, scooters and cabs, and the schedule of sessions---while subject to change and representing roughly half of the programs offered in coming weeks---is found below.
