School of Healthcare
You’re looking to make a positive impact in the lives of people, and see yourself either on the front lines of care or in a support position in a medical office.
We see a place for you here at Pittsburgh Technical College and in the marketplace. Opportunities for healthcare professionals in our region look healthy and that’s because an aging population means employers are struggling to keep pace with the demand for skilled professionals. Healthcare occupations in the Pittsburgh region are projected to grow nearly twice as fast as the job market overall for the next ten years.* With an education from PTC, you’ll be ready to take advantage of that opportunity.
You are caring and compassionate, good at organizing, prioritizing and multi-tasking. Or maybe you are detail-oriented and thrive in high-pressure, fast-paced, life-saving situations. Perhaps you like making people feel better and prefer to work in a relaxed atmosphere. No matter your personality, PTC's School of Healthcare has a program for you. No field is growing faster, or with more long-term opportunity. PTC can help you prepare for success your way — in a hospital, in a medical office, surgical suite or massage therapy clinic — in two years or less.
