Medical Careers Institute, College of Health Science of ECPI University


The Medical Careers Institute is offered through the College of Health Science at ECPI University. As the name implies, the programs offered build the foundational skills and subject-area expertise needed to pursue a variety of careers in medicine and healthcare. ECPI stands for East Coast Polytechnic Institute.

Medical Careers Institiute primarily offers professionally-focused associate and bachelors degrees. However, ECPI Nursing does offer an MSN program. In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, programs are designed to help students gain the hands-on experience they need—both in the classroom (digital or otherwise) and in the field.

ECPI Online

A number of ECPI University’s programs are available either fully or partially online. That includes several Medical Career Institute Programs, such as Healthcare Administration, Radiologic Sciences, and the Master of Science in Nursing program.

ECPI strives to offer online students—whether at Medical Careers Institute, ECPI Nursing, or in other programs—the round-the-clock academic and technical support they need to thrive. That may include valuable resources like Canvas, Microsoft Office 365, and live chat. The curriculum and standards for these online programs are identical to their campus equivalents, often taught by the same faculty, with the primary difference simply being the flexible format.
