Oct 06, 2010, 16:30 ET from The Princeton Review, Inc.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Princeton Review is pleased to announce the start of classes of the e-Health Careers Program at Bristol Community College in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

On Tuesday, October 5th, classes began for the first cohort of students for the Fall semester. The Program is currently accepting applications for additional programs to be held in the Fall in health sciences, medical coding, complementary health, and massage therapy.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to join with Bristol Community College in preparing students for good jobs in the health care field," said Michael Perik, the CEO of The Princeton Review.  "Bristol Community College has been a terrific partner, and very innovative as it attempts to expand its programs during these difficult economic times."

The Princeton Review is completing a new, state of the art facility in the heart of downtown New Bedford.  The facility will house biology labs, classrooms, and a new computer lab to expand the reach of Bristol Community College through these innovative programs.

Students will take hybrid, or blended, courses that will allow them to take a full course load, do much of their work online, and come to the campus only once per week. With this schedule, students can go to school fulltime and also meet the other demands in their life, including maintaining their jobs and caring for their families.

This collaboration with Bristol Community College is intended to be the first of many such ventures with community colleges in Massachusetts and elsewhere.
