ABOUT

Medical Career and Technical College specializes in programs for Allied Health Careers.  Our diploma based programs prepare a student to become immediately employable and credentialed upon graduation, without having to take classes to meet general education requirements (English, Math, Humanities, etc.) required at traditional colleges. Because of our small class size, the methods of instruction are more individualized with emphasis on group interaction, laboratory skills, and externship experiences!  Our mission  is to produce diligent, competent, confident graduates, credentialed in their field, and ready for employment.

The College was founded in  2011 by knowledgeable, experienced healthcare professionals and educators,    Trisha Mullins, RN, APRN, and Kristi Bertrand, MPH, CMA(AAMA), with the desire to create an educational institution with a caring family atmosphere allowing students to feel at home and welcomed, while also providing the highest quality training environment with lower tuition cost and faculty who are licensed/credentialed and passionate about teaching bringing " real world" experience into the classroom.

The Co-Founders and owners, Bertrand & Mullins, have found that providing education utilizing a stair-step approach, taking only one class each term, and attending just two days a week, has not only provided a quality learning experience, but has allowed families the benefit of being able to attend or return to college.  We welcome your comparison of Medical Career & Technical College to to all other institutions offering our programs.
