BAKERSFIELD, Calif., July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- High Desert Medical College will begin a new chapter in growth and commitment to higher education with a major move and expansion for their branch campus in Bakersfield, California.
The Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) has approved change of location for High Desert Medical College in Bakersfield from their current location on 211 South Real Road to 2000 24th Street.
Scheduled to open in August 2016, the new branch campus is centrally located in downtown Bakersfield. The upgraded facility will increase space from approximately 8,000 square feet in the current location to 26,515 square feet at the new location.
"This move represents a major community investment which will strengthen the commitment and long-term goals of High Desert Medical College.

The larger space will accommodate additional students and enable current students to take advantage of up-to-date technology in both labs and classrooms. With the move, the Dental Assisting program that has been offered at the main campus in Lancaster will now be part of the programs offered in Bakersfield.
"Our students, staff and faculty are energized about our beautiful new campus and about being centrally located and close to so many great businesses and restaurants. It is a win-win for everyone," said Sheri Johnson, Bakersfield Branch Campus Director.
