I chose Pharmacy Technician because I love to help others, and there is great job security in my field. I love Ross College because it feels like family!

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.

Gena Hicks

I have never been good at school, so thinking about taking classes again made me very anxious and unsure if this was what I even really wanted. I feel confident that I made the right decision. The instructors really care about you and your academic goals. They do everything they can to help guide you through your Medical Assistant journey. Without their support, I would have really struggled to want to stick with the program. So, a huge THANK YOU to Ebony Whitney for your unconditional support and all the extra time you spent helping me!

Ross Medical Education Center is a very good school. The entire staff is extremely helpful. There is a lot of hands-on material in each module. The teachers in the Medical Assisting program are amazing and we are learning a lot.

I've been to two other colleges and didn't feel like I was excelling, so I left and came to Ross and it was the best thing I've ever done. I'm graduating in two days and will be starting my career in medical assisting.
