CCV is a great place to get started on the path to a rewarding, high-demand career in healthcare. The health science degree provides a flexible pathway into allied health occupations as well as advanced study in biological or health sciences. Certificates in allied health preparation, clinical medical assisting, community health, medical billing and coding, and pharmacy technician provide preparation for both clinical and administrative roles, and can be applied to the associate degree and further study in healthcare fields. Whatever path you choose, you’ll be well positioned for the workforce or further education. 

CCV programs are stackable, meaning they build on one another as you progress toward your goals. Individual classes can be applied to credentials, credentials to certificates, and certificates to degrees. Check out our certificate to degree maps and explore the stackable program options available to you.
