Welcome to the Allied Health Department

The mission of the Bunker Hill Community College Allied Health Certificate Programs (AHCP) is to provide students with the education and training they need to become healthcare providers, while focusing on their needs to gain the skills required for success in the workplace, continued education, and achieving long-term goals.

Programs include Medical Assistant, Patient Care Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, Medical Interpreting, Nurse Aide/Home Health Aide, and Emergency Medical Technician.


Medical Assistant Certificate Program

This program prepares students to function as members of a health care delivery team and to perform administrative and clinical duties. The program prepares students in Healthcare Provider CPR, EKG, and phlebotomy.

Patient Care Technician Certificate Program

This program prepares students to deliver direct patient care through classroom teaching, lab practice, and actual clinical experience in hospitals and long-term care facilities. The program prepares students for a variety of entry-level positions in health care, at the same time allowing them to take prerequisite courses for the Nursing, Medical Imaging, Surgical Technology, or other related programs.

Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program

Bunker Hill Community College will no longer be accepting students into this program as of the 2013-2014 academic year.

This program prepares students to perform blood collection by venipuncture and introduces them to basic laboratory techniques. The program also prepares students in the use of EKG.


All applicants to the programs must attend a mandatory Information Session to apply and for additional information. Sessions are likely to last one to two hours and no appointment is necessary. Complete the CPT (College Placement Test) before attending an Information Session. The test is administered at the Charlestown Campus in Room B118 on a walk-in basis.
