Graduates of U.S. Colleges Take Healthcare Expertise to Covid-19 Front Lines
The U.S. Colleges San Diego Allied Health Campus supports its students’ enthusiastic and inspired goals.

From U.S. Colleges San Diego to Scripps
Giovanni R. graduated from U.S. Colleges San Diego campus in 2014. Like the rest of us, Giovanni likely never imagined living through a global pandemic. But as he puts it, Giovanni has “come a long way” since graduating from U.S. Colleges San Diego campus.
“Even with the constant change during the Covid-19 pandemic, I couldn’t be more blessed,” Giovanni says. He goes on to add, “I am not only able to treat patients, but also feel good that I helped better someone’s health.” Giovanni is now employed at Scripps Hospital.

“The experience has been awesome and different every single day,” Kelsey says of her work with the blood bank. She adds, “I wouldn’t have been so skilled without U.S. Colleges teaching me.”
