I really enjoyed getting to talk to and interact with other students and getting to work with my instructors.

Before I joined Ross, I lost my job, my car, and I lost a child. I came to the conclusion that I was tired of being broke and working dead end jobs that I didn't enjoy doing. I wanted to do something I enjoyed and got paid to do because I take pride in my work. I always have to consider my 5 year old daughter when I make my life decisions, because she's been with me through all the struggles within the past five years. This time around I just had a talk with God. I asked him what I was destined for. That's how I ended up at Ross Medical. I am enrolled in the medical assistant program. I want to be a Phlebotomist and EKG Technician. The teachers and advisers are awesome! They are very fluent, vocal, and hands on when it comes to helping their students be successful. I enjoy coming to school every day. When I'm having a rough day, everyone is so welcoming, warming, family oriented, and understanding. Ross makes me happy. I appreciate and thank you ALL.

My experience at Ross Medical Education Center was very AMAZING! I learned so many things that I never knew about the human body and how it functions. I also learned how to do everything that is required in the medical assistant program to have a chance to go to extern to be able to get more of the hands-on feeling of how things are. The instructors and students are very friendly and very helpful in everyway!

I would highly recommend Ross Medical Education Center to others around the Knoxville area. I feel like I have built a great relationship with the other students and the instructors. I love the fact that they have small classes so you get more hands on and one-on-one attention in areas you may struggle with. I love knowing that I walked in the building not knowing anyone and walked out making some great friends and having people there to support me even after graduating. I love all the staff here, they will go out of their way to do anything to help you out in any way possible. I am most definitely going to be telling others who are interested in the medical field that this is a school they should attend because they will get everything they need to succeed in life and meet some amazing people on their journey.
