eHealthCareers at Bristol Community College’s New Bedford Campus is a flexible healthcare education option designed to prepare for entry into the growing healthcare field. It combines face-to-face learning in the classroom with online learning . Fit your education into your schedule, and receive first-rate support and services – online tutorial and mentoring programs, and access to state-of-the-art technology and laboratories.

Many BCC students constantly juggle the demands of work, home, and family obligations while taking college courses. BCC eHealthCareers gives students the opportunity to earn an associate's degree or certification in healthcare through an online and onsite (hybrid) educational model. This gives BCC students the freedom and flexibility to work in the virtual classroom while still balancing life's other demands.

BCC eHealthCareers is housed in a state-of-the-art facility located in historic downtown New Bedford. BCC’s highly dedicated staff and faculty members provide students with direct and online support to ensure success, while delivering cutting-edge curricula that prepares graduates for the healthcare industry of today and the future. Students typically spend a few hours during one-day a week in the classroom, or in a laboratory, at the New Bedford facility.

eHealthCareers offers great support and resources to help you succeed. An enrollment advisor will assist you from start to finish, making sure you choose the right program for you, and then will help you maximize your financial aid. Whether you’re currently employed, underemployed or seeking employment, the program provides workforce readiness and skill building to help you develop your career.
