First instituted in 1961, the Allen School of Health Sciences is distinguished among healthcare training schools by its strong emphasis on fast-tracking students to completion of their programs. Classwork is generally full-time and moves students from beginning to accreditation in as little as six weeks. The Brooklyn branch of the school is one of three—there are also campuses in Queens and in Phoenix, Arizona.


With a focus on offering extensive training that prepares attendees for a life in the workforce, Allen School Brooklyn offers numerous programs with a technical focus as well as general education opportunities. The two main courses of study are the Nursing Assistant and Medical Assistant programs. For those interested in assisting individuals, whether in private care situations or in retirement homes, the Nursing Assistant program is the best fit. Courses include crucial skills for caring for individuals at all stages of life, and those who are interested in more certification can complete the Patient Care Technician certification, which includes Phlebotomy and EKG skills.For students interested in office work in a medical setting, the Medical Assistant programs are the best fit. The Medical Insurance and Billing program is offered online as well as on campus to meet the needs of distance learners.
