NORTH BAY – North Bay colleges are collaborating with area hospitals on expanded or new programs from phlebotomy to preparing students for careers as family practice doctors.

Empire College in Santa Rosa has expanded its phlebotomy program and will be offering students the opportunity to work with Memorial and Petaluma Valley hospitals in addition to Kaiser Permanente.

Meanwhile, Dominican University in San Rafael started a mentoring program last year for freshmen and sophomores who were interested in pursuing careers as family practice physicians.

Vickie Savino, Empire’s director of education, said the school got approval to work with the two St. Joseph Health System-owned facilities in January.
