Growing opportunities exist for employment in the Supportive Health Occupations such as Dental Hygiene, Occupational and Physical Therapy, Diagnostic Ultrasound, and Physician Assistant. Olympic College offers a preparatory curriculum for those seeking entry into these fields.
Students may need to complete the Associate in Arts Degree requirements. Students completing the Olympic College curriculum should anticipate at least an additional two years of study, and can continue at a number of the state’s public and private institutions. Practical work experience in these fields also constitutes an important criterion for entry. Students should work closely with an advisor at the baccalaureate institution they plan to transfer to before finalizing their education plan.
