Fortis Institute - Towson Reviews
The Medical Assistant program only takes 1 year to complete. Within the one year you'll be certified in CPR/First Aid, learn phlebotomy, learn proper dosage of medication for a patient, learn how to do small office surguries. There's quite a bit of bout lecture and hands-on experience but in the end, it will be completely worth the wait!
I start school March 31st but I attend Fortis, back in 2011 when it was Medix but didn't complete the program. So far since I've reenrolled my Admissions rep has really been working with me to make sure I'm make sure I'm comfortable with the time of my classes. For example, when I start I will be going at nights and once the day classes begin I have the option to either switch if I need to, or stay with the night class.
The tuition for the dental assisting program is very steep but with me getting financial aid it takes a little pressure off me until I'm done with school. I think once I graduate, paying back the loans will definitely be worth it, with me making the money I'll be making, doing what I always wanted to do and being what I always wanted to be.
