Students who are pursuing a career in healthcare usually take one of two paths. Either they pursue an associates degree or medical certification at a community college or trade school. Otherwise, they enroll in an undergraduate school that often leads to a graduate program that builds on what they learned at a four-year college.

For this reason, the top healthcare colleges can be split into two separate groups: - top undergraduate and graduate programs and top associate degree and certification programs. These schools are the best of the best with great job placement rates, top professors, first-rate facilities and curricula that challenge students with both experience-building fieldwork and intense classwork.
