Has it been your dream to pursue a career in the medical profession, but you want to make sure this is a choice that is right for you?  

Every spring semester, TMCC’s Allied Health programs host information nights where you can meet and ask questions of the faculty in the program. These questions can range from admission requirements, prerequisites, recommended course sequences and other less official bits of information like: what is the program like? Will I be overwhelmed? What color of scrubs are we supposed to wear? 

Granted, you’re always welcome to reach out to individual programs on your own time to find out more about them. information nights are a nice option, however, because in all likelihood another participant might have a question that you might not have thought to ask, but that you really want to know the answer to. 

That’s why we gathered all the Allied Health Information Nights for you happening in Spring 2022 for you here. Attend one—or all—of the events to see if the major and the career you’ve been thinking about is right for you.
