Survey finds that California community colleges not producing enough health workers, schools cite inadequate funding

The Oakland Tribune
Cañada College student Brian Lee was learning to take the perfect picture Friday.
He checked that his subject -- a fellow student -- was in the right body position and his instrument had the proper angle.

Their teacher gave Lee some advice on the gear, though. "Your distance right now is too much," she said, "so bring it down a little."
The kind of image Lee would be taking will not yield a work of art, but it could help save a life.

Lee and his classmates were working with X-ray machines during a lab session at the Redwood City campus and are studying to be radiologic technologists.
The state will need many more of them and others in the allied-health field in the coming years, according to a survey released Friday. However, community colleges statewide are unable to produce enough of these professionals -- who include nursing aides, respiratory therapists and medical assistants -- largely because of inadequate funding.

The survey involved college deans across California, including those from Peninsula and South Bay schools Cañada, Skyline College in San Bruno, De Anza College in Cupertino, West Valley College in Saratoga and San Jose City College.
