Our programs teach one class at a time to let students zero in on their classes and learn the material.

All three campuses train students to prepare for healthcare careers. Anthem College offers the following programs:
- Dental Assistant
- Massage Therapy
- Medical Assistant
- Medical Billing & Coding
- Pharmacy Technician (Maryland Heights and Fenton only)
- Surgical Technologist (Kansas City and Maryland Heights only)
- Veterinary Technologist (Kansas City only)
Not all programs are offered in all locations. Depending on the program and location, students can study towards a Diploma or Associate of Applied Science degree. The Veterinary Technologist program offers the Associate degree only.
“Anthem is a different kind of college, one that meets the needs of students who have other responsibilities,” says Suzanne Marshall-Caby, Campus President for the Fenton location. “So we offer our programs in day and night sessions that work with their schedules, not against them. It really helps those students who work or have family members they look after.”
“Our programs also teach one class at a time,” adds Heidi Wind, Campus President at the Maryland Heights campus. “This way, our students can really zero in on their classes and learn the materials instead of cramming for exams in several subjects all at once.”
All three campuses house a Massage Therapy clinic, where students who have successfully finished coursework in Massage Therapy complete a supervised clinical rotation. The clinics offer a range of massage therapy services to the public as students learn the ropes of working directly with patients.
Other students work in Externships when they complete their coursework. The Colleges place them in appropriate settings where they are supervised by professionals in that field. The real-world experience makes a big difference in preparing for a career, graduates say. “My Externship exposed me to making deposits, posting insurance and patient payments, contacting insurance companies and researching denied claims, and finding ‘lost’ money,” says Lyndon Herring, a 2010 Medical Billing & Coding graduate from the Kansas City campus.
The Kansas City campus, which began offering a Veterinary Technologist Associate Degree program in 2010, is particularly proud of its veterinary training facility. More than 100 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony to formally introduce the clinic in 2011. The program has an application for accreditation pending with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). The College has institutional accreditation from the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges & Schools (ACICS).
The Fenton and Maryland Heights campuses hold institutional accreditation from the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
