Davis Applied Technology College Reviews
The Medical Assistant program is unique to other programs because it is very hands on. For example, we practiced drawing blood on each other -something that not even my sister did in the nursing program at Weber State. The workload depended on the class that you were in. Anatomy had a large workload because of the importance of learning and knowing the body. Pharmacology also had a large workload, because there were many skills you had to learn within a certain amount of time on top of all of the medications you need to learn and study. The hardest and most important part of an MA student's workload is passing the tests and demonstrating confidence and competence when you pass of your skills. The curriculum transitions from the introduction, to terminology, to administrative tasks, to anatomy, to back office skills and pharmacology, and finally to proper etiquette in the job search. All of the curriculum is very applicable; I never once felt that I was learning useless information. When I went through the program, half the classroom had the desks and chairs for studying, and the other half of the classroom was for back office skills. My instructor recently had the wall torn down to combine his room and the neighboring classroom, forming a much larger room. In the near future, he will have actual rooms in a mock clinic for students to room "patients" into thanks to this new expansion. Because my instructor is so diligent in pushing us along and teaching us, pretty close to all of his students make it to the point of their unpaid 300 hour externship (basically the same thing as an intern). He will sit down with the student and discuss where the student would like to be placed. Because he knows our personalities, he places us in clinics where he knows we will thrive and where we will be happy. When I completed the program, my instructor had 100% job placement for the MA program.
I went through the Medical Assisting program at the DATC, passed my certification exam, and was placed in the field all in just over 1 year. My favorite part of my experience was the hands on learning environment, and the fact that my instructor really cared about us and got to know each of his students on a personal level. The DATC is the best because you get the best, highest quality instruction for less cost tuition-wise. I would most definitely choose the DATC again if I had to do it all over.
I think it depends on what job you're working and how flexible your job is too. My class times worked really well with my job, because I went to school from 8 to 3, and then worked from 4 to 8 most nights. I never really had a conflict with work and school; I was not worried about the work load from school and not getting it completed because of work. I really like that the DATC has a lot of options for class time. At least the medical assistant program did, anyway.
