CHCP Career Services

Transition From Student to a Healthcare Professional

CHCP is committed to student success that extends beyond the classroom. CHCP Career Services maintains relationships with healthcare providers to place students in the right career with growth potential. We know that in addition to technical expertise, employers look for candidates with soft skills who can provide patient care in a professional manner and collaborate efficiently within a medical team. CHCP Career Services will help you develop interpersonal skills that go hand-in-hand with your medical training career path.

What does CHCP Career Services do?

CHCP Career Services is a central component of the student journey that aids in the transition from student to healthcare professional. Students work alongside a Career Service Advisor who will prepare them for their healthcare career. Once students finish their classroom training, a Career Services Advisor will help place students in an externship site with one of our employer partners. CHCP students and alumni are able to benefit from career tools and resources available at our nine ground campuses throughout the state and our online college through our Career Services team.
