MEDIX COLLEGE REVIEW - LEAH


"I chose Medix College because I had a friend here who took the tech program, who loved it and had a great experience, such a great experience that every time we'd work together she'd come in boasting about it.

She'd say; "I love my teachers! I love all the different things we get to do!"

When I was finished work, and wondered what I was going to do [in the future], I chose Medix.

I like the campus because of the location, it's very accessible. It's also small, with more intimate classrooms, which I like more then university style classrooms, where you feel like a number more then a person.

I love my instructors here, they're all very well versed in their fields, and they bring real world experience along with the academic side of it.

I found it easy to make friends and contacts [on campus]. On your first day, you're kind of nervous, everyone is looking at each other, but within 10 minutes everyone is chatting, and they welcome you in, and everyone is exchanging phone numbers.

It's a family atmosphere where everyone motivates each other. My family loved me coming here, my mom was a nurse, so anything in the healthcare field, she was like: "Yes, go!" They were so supportive.

I already had a university degree, and I worked well with it, but I wanted something more out of life, something more practical.

This gives me a whole new opportunity in life for a crazy amount of things."

MEDIX COLLEGE REVIEW - MARVA


"I chose Medix because I went to different campuses, the class sizes.... I was impressed with it.

The class sizes were what I was looking for, [along with] the convenience and flexibility that Medix has.

My instructor was great! She was patient and always had time for you.

My instructor would stay back after class and sit with you. It doesn't matter how difficult you think the programis, your test is. But she would always have the time for you. I came to Medix and it was a whole new perspective.

After my program at Medix I went to an internship, and because I...Because I was prepared, because I was trained on my internship, I got hired there.

So to me, Medix is everything."
