Health Care Careers

The South Sound is home to several hospitals, medical centers and social services, resulting in a rich infrastructure in Tacoma's Medical Mile, where Bates Technical College's Downtown Campus is located.

"Strong relationships with industry partners like MultiCare Health System, CHI Franciscan Health and their medical group, as well as the many rehabilitation and elder-care facilities in Pierce County, are an important part of how we educate our students," says the college's Dean of Allied Health and Executive Director of Nursing Dianne Nauer. "These partners actively participate on our advisory committees to ensure that our graduates are trained to current industry standards and are ready for employment upon graduation."

Faculty Spotlight

Instructor Shawn Adams

Shawn Adams, Dental Assisting instructor

"I teach students who are just beginning the program, so I love watching them go from knowing no more than the average dental patient knows to using dental terminology and getting really excited to start the hands-on learning portion."
