Missouri College Offers Several Programs Focused On Health & Wellness Careers

With so much interest in healthy lifestyles today, there are many avenues someone who would like to enter this field could pursue professionally. Missouri College offers several programs focused on healthcare and wellness careers as well as other fields.

Whether you’re looking for hands-on involvement in caring for patients’ healthcare needs or in work that supports those needs in an office setting, Missouri College can help you develop the essential skills and knowledge you need to get started.

Their programs put you in settings that simulate real world environments to help you experience what the workplace is really like. And you can learn from instructors who specialize in what they teach – including many practicing professionals.

Areas that are especially relevant for those who want to focus on wellness are the school’s Massage Therapy, Fitness Training, and Occupational Therapy Assistant programs. They not only teach the range of techniques and skills needed to do the job but also help prepare you to work one-on-one with people, assessing their needs and adapting your therapies to the individual. This requires empathy, good listening skills, and confidence in your judgment and abilities – all qualities Missouri College can help you acquire through hands-on learning activities, clinical experience, and supportive, knowledgeable instructors.

Significant growth is expected in those fields through 2022. The need for Occupational Therapy Assistants is projected to increase by 41%, with 23% higher demand for Massage Therapists, and 13% for Fitness Trainers.*

In addition to the popular wellness fields, Missouri College offers many other healthcare and business programs. The school has been providing career-focused training and education for over 45 years, preparing thousands of people for challenging and rewarding professional opportunities.
