In 2007 United Healthcare Careers College began as a training institute in Los Angeles, California solely to train students in the healthcare field. The business model of the school is to only have healthcare related programs. Initially the school only implemented the medical assistant program coupled with pharmacy technician as the second major of choice. The school experienced growth faster than anticipated and, as a result, moved to its current location in 2010. In 2016 the school name changed to Universal Healthcare Careers College.
Universal Healthcare Careers College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). Accreditation is a rigorous process that schools undertake and, if successful, provides validation for the school’s administrative capability and program delivery. Our accreditor explains accreditation this way: Accreditation seeks to assess and enhance the educational quality of an institution, ensure consistency in institutional operations, promote self-evaluation and institutional improvement, and provide for public accountability within a peer-review framework. ACCSC accreditation promotes institutional accountability by systematically and comprehensively evaluating institutions based upon criteria established via the Standards of Accreditation.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically….Intelligence plus character – That is the goal of true education.
– Martin Luther King
As Dr. King said, true education focuses not only on knowledge, but on character development; especially developing the traits that lend the graduate to becoming a successful practitioner in the healthcare industry. Thus, through well thought-out workshops the student receives the type of training that allows personal growth while learning skills and knowledge necessary, making the transition from training to work seamless.
Our mission is to prepare students to gain employment in entry level jobs in the healthcare field. Equally important is to prepare students to learn the things necessary to serve themselves, their families, profession and community. We will not be an organization driven by ideas; instead, we will rely on insight to lead us to great ideas. We will not commit to anything until we have answered all questions. By doing this, we will help our students build their lives.
That every time we look at our successful graduates, we see hope and possibilities for our students.
I’m Jizet and I graduated UHCC in 2014. I started working right away after graduation. I recently moved up in my career. I referred several of my family and friends to UHCC and they now have great jobs and careers. Coming to UHCC was the right decision for me and I think it would be for you too.

My name is Simarjeet. I came to this school few years ago and it changed my life. I started working for a great company before I even graduated. I even got a family member to come and she is also working. The faculty is great and they inspired me so much so that I’m now enrolled in a physician assistant program. They helped me believe in myself.
