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 universities. With small class sizes, 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!

We offer a caring family atmosphere allowing students to feel at home and welcomed from the moment you walk in! Our high quality training environment, lower tuition costs, and faculty that are credentialed and passionate about teaching provides a preparation for the "real-world" that will help you jump start your career successfully!

Each program concludes with an externship where the student is placed in an actual employment setting practicing those skills learned in their program. This has been a great place for our students to land their first job!

KRISTI AND HUSBAND TOM

PRESIDENT/FOUNDER

Since 1996, Kristi Bertrand, MPH, B.S., A.S., CMA (AAMA) has been actively involved in higher education from holding a faculty position, developing curriculum, to the management of several higher educational allied health programs. Her vast experience included that of leading programs and campuses through the accreditation process and doing so flawlessly. Ms. Bertrand has served on numerous educational boards and participates as an on-site evaluator for various accrediting bodies.

Ms. Bertrand advocates for increased awareness to access affordable quality skills training where employment is readily available. With that came the vision for Medical Career & Technical College. Unlike many two-year or four-year institutions, students can graduate with a career skill in just a years’ time and for a smarter overall total tuition cost.

In addition to affordability, Ms. Bertrand realized to attend college it takes time, and in todays era, families require an income, which requires time to work. The vision of offering programs where students attend just two days a week is the key to so many student’s success. Another key factor in the success of learning is that students take just one course at a time, allowing a true stair step approach that meets the needs of today’s academic learner.

Welcome to Medical Career & Technical College and we thank you for your commitment in choosing our great institution and letting us help you Jump Into your Career! Your success is our priority!
