I'm a single mother of 3 and work full time. I came to the point of my life where I was ready to change my profession and do something that will better our lives. So I was looking around at different schools, calling around seeing what they offer. Then my mom told me about Ross. I was nervous of course, but I called and the gentleman I talked to was so upbeat and supportive. Made me feel like they were really willing to help me out. I set up an interview with the school and I met with Brandi. Brandi is amazing!! She was so friendly and listened to all of my needs and wants. I started school in May 2018, of course I was nervous, but everyone helped me out with all of my questions. Every time I walk in for class, they are always so friendly and knew my name from day one. I was in the evening MA program. My teacher was very helpful and if I needed help they would sit down with me and work one-on-one. I'm now on my externship with the school. I'm at an ENT and I love it! I'm so glad I took the step and called Ross because now I see everything I learned in school coming out everyday and realize every day that my life will be for the better with this career.Alycia Murdie Graduate Medical Assistant student at Knoxville, TN campus Graduation: January 23, 2019

I chose Ross Medical Education Center for schooling because I was looking for a great place to learn and start a fantastic career path. Before attending Ross, I was not sure which medical career path I wanted to enroll in. I toured the school and the administrative staff told me a little bit about each class offered. I decided to join the Dental Assistant program. Throughout the course, Ross Medical Education Center went above and beyond to make sure each student had everything they needed in order to be successful. My learning experience at Ross was exceptional! I learned so much more than I had anticipated. Ross is very hands-on and allows students to practice clinically in school and practice during externship at a medical office. I really enjoy that the school gives students the opportunity and benefit of learning "on-site" and being a part of a co-worker team. While I was on externship, I gained working confidence and efficiency on the things I was taught in school. I was able to get my radiology certification while on externship and I am now able to take x-rays on patients when needed. I've also been able to assist the dentist on procedures, sterilize instruments, set up trays and operatories. Overall, I think Ross Medical Education Center was a great school choice! I could not ask for a better school to help me prepare and start a great career! I would recommend Ross schools to anyone wanting to start a career in the medical field.Paige White Graduate Dental Assistant student at Brighton, MI campus Graduation: November 25, 2019
