HCC endoscopy scholarship

The Houston Community College Foundation is honored to partner with the Cancer Fighters of Houston to provide a named scholarship for one student each year in the endoscopy program. The endoscopy program is one of the newest programs for Health Sciences at Coleman College and every spot filled is necessary to meet the demands of the Houston hospital systems.

At times, we encounter students who need financial support to complete their programs. We are thankful for partnerships such as this to make a student’s dream of education a reality. As one of the largest community colleges in the nation, HCC’s top priority and mission are focused on serving our students. We know that education changes lives and is an equalizer, creating opportunities for all. The CFOH will help make that possible every year!

Endoscopy technicians assist gastroenterologists and nurses with endoscopy procedures. They establish and maintain the field, assist with equipment set up, collect specimens with proper labeling and handling, help run equipment during procedures, clean and sterilize equipment after procedures, and can be responsible for troubleshooting maintenance and repairs.

Aspiring endoscopy technicians can enter this field upon graduating high school or earning a GED. Once employed, they must complete on-the-job training. Endoscopy technicians who want to pursue formal education can complete a certificate program in endoscopy or an associate’s in surgical technology.
