I learned so much in my short time here at Ross. Mrs. Hawley was one of the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure of learning from. She made every day in the classroom enjoyable and amazing. I'm so glad I chose Ross to help me step into my medical career. Now that I've graduated, I feel prepared to start this next chapter in my life and I am very excited.

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 never thought that I could accomplish going back to school at the age of 47, but I did it and now it has come to an end. I have enjoyed the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration class and have learned a lot from my instructor and my classmates. My instructor helped me in so many ways. I would recommend to anyone to invest in the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration class.

The program has changed me a lot. I learned to be more professional. I've learned a lot and I watched myself make progress, from getting better grades to having a better and more professional attitude, as well as understanding situations better. It also expanded my knowledge about the medical field. I recommend the program if you are looking to go into the medical field, I think it's a good start.
