ROGERS, Ark., May 8, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Due to ongoing demand for qualified healthcare professionals in northwest Arkansas, Bryan University will be holding a public informational meeting about healthcare training programs offered at both its Rogers campus and via the institution’s online division.
“For some time we have seen a steady demand for trained allied health professionals in northwest Arkansas and the data suggests that will only increase in coming years,” said James Finley, Executive Director of the campus in Rogers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that healthcare occupations are expected to grow by 18 percent through 2026 and the specific demand for trained medical assistants will increase by 29 percent during the same period. Both expectations of growth are “much faster than the average for all occupations,” according to the bureau’s Occupational Outlook Handbook (*note 1).
Bryan University is an educational partner with American Medical Technologist and prepares students for national certification as medical assistants and medical administrative specialists. The online division of Bryan University also prepares students for the Certified Professional Coder exam in the medical billing and coding program.
The informational meeting is open to the public and will be held at the university’s campus, located 3704 West Walnut, Rogers, AR on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Bryan University administration requests that interested parties RSVP for the event via telephone at (479) 899-6644.
