The mission of Malcolm X College Health Sciences department is to educate the next generation of professionals in the healthcare and wellness industries while promoting leadership, lifelong learning, and a commitment to improve health outcomes for the communities we serve.       

Program Description               

When illness threatens the well-being of yourself or a loved one, nothing can be more comforting than the knowledge and expertise of a qualified healthcare professional. People in the health sciences work to prevent, diagnose, and treat illnesses and injuries. Some work with specific tissues or fluids, like phlebotomists, while others, like morticians, work with human remains. If you value helping others, and you enjoy science classes, consider a career in Healthcare.
