There's never been a better time to enter the field of healthcare, and there's no better place to learn than HCC! Whether you seek a solid foundation for transfer or preparation for immediate entry into the workforce, HCC will help you realize your goals. What sets HCC apart? Small class size, advisors who offer ongoing guidance, and faculty who put teaching first—plus the opportunity to learn using the same technology you'll find in hospitals and clinics. HCC's new Center for Health Education is equipped with state-of-the-art patient suites, radiology and anatomy skills labs, sophisticated medical dispensing systems and high tech patient simulators. You'll graduate from HCC with the skills you need to secure a job or a spot in a competitive college or university.
