SCC Faculty Global Connections
Scott Cutler, SCC faculty and director of Echocardiography, knows Canada. A British Columbia native and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) graduate, Scott is not only a local leader in his field, he is aware of the educational opportunities and employment trends available to our northern neighbors. As he recently stated, “There is a significant demand for well-trained healthcare workers [in Canada] and I feel that we can provide the necessary training for them.”
Education USA experts echo Professor Cutler’s sentiment regarding this need. In March, Scott promoted our Allied Health Programs with Global Education recruiter, Trina Allen in a webcast detailing the opportunities in the high-demand, high-pay fields of Health Science to prospective international students worldwide.
