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.Louisa Palmer Graduate Medical Assistant student at Knoxville, TN campus Graduation: October 28, 2019
