Congrats 2021/2022 Grads!
HDMC Graduates Enter the Job Market with our Support
Graduation season is here! Last month, High Desert Medical College was proud to celebrate 629 students graduating from our programs across all three campuses. We congratulate these graduates for their dedication and perseverance in completing their programs, and we are excited to see them take the next step as they transition into the job market.
At HDMC, we are committed to supporting our students with job placement assistance, and we are proud of the placement rates we maintain. As an accredited institution through the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), High Desert Medical College must meet certain placement numbers in order to maintain our accreditation, and we consistently meet and even exceed that requirement. To learn more about the standards required by our accrediting agency, go to accet.org.
HDMC’s accredited programs prepare students for success in their chosen career path by providing practical, relevant training. Diploma programs at HDMC, including Medical Assisting, Medical Billing and Coding, Pharmacy Technician, Ultrasound Technician, Veterinary Assistant, and Vocational Nursing, feature an externship course. By participating in the externship, students apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in the classroom to a real-world setting. Students receive on-the-job experience, thoroughly preparing them for the realities of their future positions. Some even get hired at their externship sites!
“Just officially became a dental assistant! One of the best things I decided to do for myself was go back to school. I’m glad I chose a school that had financial aid available and an amazing staff. Ms. D is a great instructor and really taught me everything I needed to know before they sent me out to extern. My extern site was impressed with how much I knew and could do, that even though they didn’t have a position open after my extern they decided to make one for me! So thanks to High Desert Medical College I started my career!
