Spencerian College was founded in 1892 by Enos Spencer, a nationally recognized business educator. In the history book Beginning of the Business School, author Charles G. Reigner says, "The name Spencerian had embedded itself in the consciousness of the American people. The name had been associated with business schools for almost a hundred years. It is an honored name."

At Spencerian, we still proudly stand for quality career education. Thousands of Spencerian graduates hold positions in medical professions across the country, and employers continue to seek Spencerian graduates to meet their employment needs.

Find Your Place in Healthcare at Spencerian
The modern healthcare system relies on a diverse network of dedicated medical professionals who each play an essential part in improving the wellbeing of our communities. Whether you’d like to work with patients directly or prefer a behind-the-scenes role, Spencerian College will help you find where you fit in to this dynamic network of care. Through clinical experiences, faculty mentors and classes that challenge you to be better, Spencerian will prepare you to excel in your specialty.

The Network of Care

Specialties - Highly specialized branches of medicine, such as respiratory therapy and surgical technology, focus on the treatment of specific aspects of a patient's health. Specialists typically concentrate their care on issues and disorders relating to particular parts of the human anatomy or on a particular treatment method. Respiratory therapists tend to heart and lung problems, while surgical technologists assist with surgical operations.

Patient Care - While all members of the healthcare network are considered caregivers, certain professionals work more closely with patients to manage their health needs and provide emotional support. Spencerian trains future practical nurses, registered nurses, medical assistants, clinical assistants and others to take on direct care roles and develop their capacities for compassionate care, clear communication and informed decision making.

- The radiology branch of the network of care is one aspect of the healthcare team that focuses on compassionate patient care while obtaining quality images for the radiologist (physician) to make diagnoses. Spencerian's radiologic technology program prepares students to effectively position patients, operate radiographic equipment and appropriately protect patients while producing diagnostic images.

Wellness - Wellness focuses on promoting a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit in order to reach overall wellbeing. Massage therapy practices this holistic approach to health and often relieves and improves pain, injuries or disorders. Spencerian's massage therapy programs emphasize fundamentals such as tissue manipulation, stretching techniques, body movements and neurology.

- Laboratory test results play a crucial role in accurately diagnosing and treating patients. Phlebotomists, medical laboratory technicians, clinical laboratory assistants and others collect samples and perform tests to analyze body fluids, tissues and substances using sophisticated lab equipment. Many laboratory science professionals present their findings to physicians and consult with them on the proper courses of action.

Medical Office - The administrative side of the network of care relies on the work of medical administrators, medical coders and healthcare reimbursement specialists. Spencerian's medical office programs provide the detailed training necessary to manage or provide administrative support to a medical facility, which includes duties such as health information management, appointment scheduling, medical claims and billing review and patient communications.
