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.Keturah Roberson Graduate Medical Assistant student at Saginaw, MI campus Graduation: January 17, 2019
I thank Ross for everything that they have done, from the first time I stepped foot on their campus. I was so afraid, but not so much of starting school, but afraid of failure. That was my biggest fear until talking with one of the school's administrators. She made me feel so comfortable in becoming a student at Ross. Once I started and met my teachers it became so easy. They took time out to help me when I didn't understand things, which made it that much easier. Once I got to my externship I was so excited yet afraid at the same time. However, where they sent me for my externship is where I wanted to go and upon completion, I am very proud to say that I got hired and I am still working there to this day! Ross helped me with my career so much that I enrolled in the online school for Ross and received my associates degree. It was hard being a full-time mom, employee, and student, but I did it and so can you, thanks to Ross and its amazing team!Shayla Hall Graduate Medical Assistant student at Portage, MI campus Graduation: November 9, 2016

I am a student in the Pharmacy Technician program here at Ross. I love this program so much. It has helped and motivated me to make the best out of my life. I never thought I would have a job that was not in the food service industry! I really enjoy coming to school and learning as much as I can. The staff here has helped me reach for the stars and I have maintained a 3.5 gpa for the majority of this course. I cannot wait to graduate in March and live the life that my child and I deserve!Julia Haddad Graduate Pharmacy Technician student at Madison Heights, MI campus Graduation: March 3, 2019
