Health Professions


The Health Professions Division offers a variety of programs and classes to assist individuals wishing to enter healthcare careers. The excellence of each program is evidenced by our graduates' high scores on licensing board exams and rapid employment. All programs are accredited from governing boards.

As a community service, the Health Professions Division also provides a low cost Dental Clinic. The clinic supplements our Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene Programs. See below for additional information.

Program application requirements and processes vary and may differ from year-to-year. Programs begin fall term (exception is the EMT Basic class series which also runs a Spring/Summer series).

To Our Students: Please be informed that Lane Community College Division of Health Professions requires all students to submit appropriate personal information (such as immunization records, federal and state background checks, drug screens and others) to CastleBranch, a company specializing in the collection and storage of student health care information. Submission of required documents must be accomplished prior to the beginning of classes. Both the drug screens and background checks must be clear (e.g. absence of positive results for narcotics, marijuana, alcohol and/or other illicit substances for drug screen) to ensure clinical placements and graduation from Health Profession programs. Specifics on required documents, costs, timelines, and how to access CastleBranch, will be included in the letter of program acceptance and/or discussed at the Mandatory Program Orientation.

Dear Students:
Please be aware that you will be required to have a minimum 2.0 gpa at the time of graduation in order to graduate and receive your certificate or associate's degree from LCC. Please also be aware that only LCC courses count toward your final gpa.
