America’s ER Brings Medical Career Expo to Magnolia ISD

MISD students will have the opportunity to explore medical related academic careers and programs. College recruiters from Rice, University of Texas, Texas A&M, Sam Houston State University, Lone Star College-Tomball and Montgomery, and the Vocational Nursing Institute will be on site to recruit and promote their health science programs.

There will also be several career exploration booths including physicians, nurses, radiologists, pharmacists, chiropractors, emergency medical personnel, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.

"My colleagues and I at America's ER are excited to share our passion for healthcare with the Magnolia ISD students. It's tough trying to determine what you want to be when you grow up!” explains Dr. Kimberly Waaso. “By combining fun, education and one-on-one interactions with medical professionals, we hope the students will gain a bit more insight into a variety of health related careers.”

Students will also have the opportunity to step inside an AMBUS, one of eight in the state of Texas that is used to assist with mass casualty and evacuation transport; tour and meet the crew of the PHI air medical helicopter; and explore the inside of a Montgomery County Hospital District (MCHD) ambulance.

Dr. Matt Clark, director of Career and Technology Education stated, “We are excited to partner with our community and America’s ER to offer a career day focused on the health sciences. There is a demand for these jobs and what a great way for students to explore career options and speak with the experts.”

MISD offers several career and technology education (CTE) pathways including Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) certifications and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification.
