The center features a fully equipped hospital-quality emergency room, simulation labs, skills labs, classrooms and technology, creating state-of–the-art learning experiences for students.

Health Careers Resource Center
The Health Careers Resource Center (HCRC) coordinates in-person and on-line access to the rich array of diverse credit and continuing education health professions programs at the colleges of DCCCD while helping students make appropriate choices of programs. It provides a one-stop-shop for employers and individuals interested in health careers, including exploration, testing, skills assessment, degree planning, and referrals to appropriate programs and financial aid resources at the colleges.
The center eliminates barriers for students, tracks student progress, coordinates clinical assignments, markets health career opportunities, recruits instructors for specialized areas, and reduces duplication of efforts and personnel at the colleges. It is a significant departure from business-as-usual in stand-alone programs.
