GUIDANCE SERVICES

The school provides assistance to students with career planning and selection of a program of study at New Horizons Medical Institute.  The School Educational Coordinator assists students in broadening their interpersonal skills and recognizing their aptitude and abilities.  Self-development and support in the process of adjusting to school life are also provided.  Other guidance services include exploration of career occupational interest, evaluations for transferability of courses, new student orientation, and educational planning.

The school provides a referral for guidance services for more personal issues and concerns. These are available to all students through an “outreach” program that provides information about community programs and services.

Information regarding services available to the handicapped and international students is also available.  New student orientation provides new students with information about procedures, programs, registration and services available throughout the community.
