Many topics are covered to help students apply, fund and complete their studies
— Ashton Cudjoe, President and CEO of Hawaii Medical College
HONOLULU, HI, USA, September 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hawaii Medical College (HMC) has developed a series of Cats by the fire to educate students and the community at large about healthcare education and careers.
Vocational training at Hawaii Medical College helps graduates find employment in in-demand healthcare careers. But on the road to completing this education, there are obstacles that prevent some students from achieving their goals. Whether it’s a difficulty with the application, the financial aid process or uncertainty about their ability, HMC wants to provide as much help as possible. To this end, fireside chats are planned on a variety of topics. The first, held in August, introduced Queens’ healthcare system and focused on the school’s day school partnership and what it takes to work in Queens. Fireside Chats are free and take place every five weeks.
The second, to be held on September 9, 2022, will address topics related to financial aid, including:
• What does the president’s loan forgiveness announcement mean to you?
• What if I am in default? What is the Fresh Start Program
• How does the federal student aid program work?
• What is a Pell Grant?
• What are the positive and negative aspects of student loans?
“Hawaii Medical College prides itself on being student-centered,” said Ashton Cudjoe, president and CEO of Hawaii Medical College. “All of our staff and the partners we work with want to give students and graduates the knowledge and tools to gain training that leads to employment in healthcare.”
Currently, Hawaii Medical College Programs include Clinical Physician Assistant, Health Care Administration Billing and Coding, and Advanced Nursing Aide. Degree-level programs can be completed in 15 months, while degree programs take 24 months. Students can enroll at any time. HMC’s dedicated staff assist with every step of the enrollment process, from admissions forms to obtaining financial aid – and as students progress through their programs.
