WestMed College recognizes that healthcare is one of the largest and most rapidly changing industries nationwide.
Technological and clinical developments continue to improve the healthcare landscape. New drug treatments and therapies for chronic illnesses, information technology advancements, such as the digitalization of health records, and pending healthcare reform regulations that may affect coverage, are all changing how healthcare professionals diagnose, treat, operate and assist. WestMed College equips our students with the latest medical knowledge, cutting-edge medical equipment training and current best practices so that they can advance in the dynamic healthcare arena safely, ethically and competitively.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare will generate 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs through 2018, more than any other industry. With an aging baby-boomer generation and unprecedented healthcare crisis, the nation faces a critical need for skilled healthcare professionals. To help close the gap in patient care, WestMed College offers programs in: vocational nursing, medical assisting, nurse assisting, and training for paramedics and emergency medical technicians.
WestMed is headquartered in San Jose with campuses in Merced, Fresno, and Chula Vista, California.
