Courses in medical terminology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, and end of life issues are offered by a team of qualified health professionals with diverse but complementary backgrounds. Some examples of current educational backgrounds include a doctorate in pharmacy and master's degrees in nursing and related health specialties.

Professors are also highly prepared in the latest teaching, learning philosophies, and practices. Innovative presentation techniques are utilized in the classroom through the implementation of the latest technology, such as PowerPoint presentations and appropriate audio-visual modalities. HPRS courses are offered in the traditional classroom setting and non-traditional setting, via the Internet, via television, and via hybrid. As a result, students may attend classes on campus or receive instruction at their home or business via the computer or television.

Hybrid courses are one of the new methods of instruction at ACC. This method divides instruction between the classroom and half online to meet the needs of the student. Additionally, some of the HPRS courses are integrated with the continuing education (CE) courses allowing the student the opportunity to earn CE credits required for professional development or the ability to gain exposure to a health care related course before committing to a credit program. Every attempt is made to enhance and strengthen the student's educational experiences.
