Health Sciences students experience on-campus learning using high-tech simulation equipment and receive additional hands-on practice at clinical sites located throughout Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties.

“Entry into TCL’s health sciences programs is highly competitive, so it’s best to start the application process early,” Health Sciences Dean Marge Sapp said.

The job outlook is exceptional for all of TCL’s health career programs.

Health care will generate 3.2 million new jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population. Employment in the health care industry is projected to increase 22 percent through 2018, compared with 11 percent for all industries combined, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Federal and state financial aid options are available through the TCL financial aid office. Additionally, most South Carolina residents automatically qualify for S.C. Lottery Tuition Assistance.
