Health Sciences

Welcome to the Health Sciences division at Heartland Community College.

What do you want to do with your life?  If your answer sounds like “I want to help people” or “I want to make a difference,” you may want to explore the classes and programs offered through the Health Sciences division.  In HS, our students learn to serve others during the most critical times in their lives.  Whether working to educate children during their formative years, caring for patients during times of medical emergency or illness, serving the public through our justice system, or maintaining and promoting personal health, graduates of our programs learn practical, professional skills and make a real impact in the community.
