Here is What Our Students Say...
"I knew that I wanted to help people. I knew that I loved the human body and I wanted to be more interested in it. So, I knew I needed to go to school to learn about health care. I want to work with people, so I looked into being an MA. And all I can say is that I'm so happy that I did this, because not only did I learn hard skills like learning how to do blood pressure, and more with billing and all that. But I also learned soft skills. I learned how to talk to people. I was very nervous before I started here." - Ianny
"I began my journey pursuing a degree in early childhood education. However, about two years ago I got a feeling that I should be doing something else. So I started taking a couple of health care classes, like medical terminology, and I LOVED it and my grades reflected it. I applied to the medical assisting program and I just found my place. My professor, Denise Lash, was so supportive and my classmates were awesome! I will be finishing in August (2020) and hope to work for Cleveland Clinic so if I want to go further in health care, I have my foot in the door in a good hospital."
