MVCTC Adult Education Offering Dialysis Technician Program

The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Adult Education division is now offering a Dialysis Technician program that prepares adult student to work in dialysis units, assisting in the care of patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Through this program, which is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing, MVCTC students will put in 220 hours of unpaid clinical experience externships at DaVita dialysis centers.. “There is a need for skilled healthcare workers across the country and particularly in Ohio, so we are happy to partner with MVCTC and use our resources help to fill this gap,” said David Spears, Western Ohio Regional Operations Director for DaVita.

DaVita Inc. is a leading provider of kidney care in the United States, delivering dialysis services and education to patients with chronic kidney failure and end stage renal disease. DaVita serves approximately 124,000 patients across the nation with life-saving kidney care treatment. The clinical experience is a cooperative effort between MVCTC and DaVita dialysis centers.

Lynn Beaver, MVCTC Adult Education Health Occupations Coordinator, says of the partnership with DaVita, “Related to their commitment to the community, DaVita dialysis centers have accepted all of our students into various facilities to meet the required clinical hours of the program. MVCTC is grateful for the opportunities afforded to our students by the staff at the DaVita facilities. It is through their cooperation, that our students are receiving the educational assistance necessary to become dialysis technicians.”
