Medical college invites visitors
Merced Sun-Star

A little-known college in Merced offers several desirable fast-track careers in the medical field in the Central Valley, where there’s a shortage of medical professionals. WestMed College, a National University System affiliate, offers programs in paramedic medicine, medical assisting, vocational nursing, nurse assistant, medical diagnostic sonography and health information technology, among others. “Our programs are certainly considered high-demand,” said Kevin Kranich, admission and placement supervisor for the college.
