PITTSFIELD, MA – The Human Resources Department at Berkshire Health Systems will host its annual Healthcare Career Education Fair for anyone wishing to enter the fields of nursing, diagnostic radiology technology, laboratory, pharmacy and physical, occupational and speech therapy.

The fair will be held on Tuesday, March 30th from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. in Berkshire Medical Center’s Private Dining Rooms, adjacent to the cafeteria.
The fair is designed to promote awareness of careers in healthcare where job opportunities are increasing.

As part of the program, participants can learn more about degree and professional training programs at 15 schools and colleges from throughout the area and beyond, including online learning programs. Representatives from the schools will be available at the event to discuss their programs. In addition, attendees can learn more about financial assistance programs and other financial aid resources.
The Healthcare Career Education Fair is open to anyone interested in a healthcare career and targeted to high school students and their parents, guidance counselors, current Registered Nurses wishing to seek a bachelor’s or master’s degree and all employees of Berkshire Health Systems and Berkshire Healthcare Systems wishing to further their training and careers.
