Currently there are two programs offered by the Community Outreach Division. The first is the grant-funded Maroons in Health Sciences program in collaboration with Dowling Catholic High School, Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines, and several other agencies intended to afford interested sophomores, juniors, and seniors in careers in a Catholic healthcare environment.
The second outreach program is the long-standing Medical Billing and Coding Certificate course, which has been offered by Mercy College since 1998. The 10-week program prepares students for entry-level positions in non-acute healthcare facilities and insurance companies handling the insurance paperwork associated with medical treatments.
Additional outreach programing is currently under development.
