A patient care technician career is a rewarding path in a growing healthcare field, and Saint Louis College of Health Careers can help you achieve your personal and professional goal.

A patient care technician career will enable you to make a difference in the lives of people by directly providing for their medical needs, and you will be a vital part of the healthcare team in a hospital, skilled nursing or other medical facility, or in a home as a home health aide.
