Accreditation and Approvals

Accreditation

Accreditation is a voluntary process undertaken by a school to demonstrate compliance with specific standards intended to indicate a level of educational quality. There are two types of accreditations: Institutional and Programmatic. Institutional accreditation involves a comprehensive review of the entire school.  Thus, when a school in the United States is accredited, it means it has passed a set of criteria stipulated by an accrediting agency, consequently allowing eligible student’s to apply for government grants and loans. Programmatic Accreditation is achieved by the school for individual programs. Currently, State of New Jersey and many other states mandate Surgical Technicians and Sterile Processing Technicians to be credentialed. 

Medical Career Institute holds programmatic accreditation for several of its programs that require this additional recognition. Programmatic accreditation provides graduates with the eligibility to sit for various highly recognized registry exams immediately upon graduation without any requirements of work experience. Programmatic Accreditation thus serves as a further indication that the program meets the highest standards of the education, and may therefore directly influence graduates with job opportunities.
