Meet the

Faculty & Staff

Our Vision

We advocate for increased awareness to access affordable, quality, skills training where employment is readily available. Unlike many two-year or four-year institutions, students can graduate from Medical Career & Technical College with career skills in just a years’ time and for a smarter overall total tuition cost.

In addition to affordability, we recognize that it takes time to attend college, and in today’s 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 learners.

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