CCAC is one of the nation's leading producers of graduates with Associate Degrees in the health professions. Here you can prepare for one of several health-related careers in the classroom and in our "State of the Science" lab/clinical facilities. We can help you chart a path in diagnostic, therapeutic, patient or administrative services.
