We have been hosting ECA students from Medix College at our center over the last five years. Our experience has been very positive, as the students exhibit a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm. We have hired some of our previous students, and others we were able to provide them with a good reference. We are very happy with this partnership; we know the quality of the curriculum and we look forward to continuing to mentor students in our ever-growing field. Our experience with Andrea (Field Placement Supervisor) has always been very pleasant and professional. She follows through on matters in a timely manner, at the same time demonstrates a high respect for boundaries. Sincerely,
Josie Garabet, RECE
Walnut St Junior School has had the pleasure of working with Medix College of Healthcare and its wonderful staff and students! We have always had great communication with Supervisor, Andrea Mangos and we developed a great partnership. It has been wonderful to have the opportunity to work with her students. The students have demonstrated great work ethic, dedication and professionalism. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Andrea Mangos and her students.
R & N Eye Centre has been partnering with Medix College to host placement students since 2017. We have had at least five successful candidates who were all knowledgeable in our work settings. They were willing to be trained according to our standards. They are also reliable to handle patients in a very busy working environment, they excelled in their duties as Medical Office Administrators. We have currently hired one of the students while the others have successfully found employment. Special thanks to Shereen & staff at Medix College for giving us great students. We are looking forward to partnering with Medix College students in the future.

I am elated to speak on my profound experience at Medix College and the gratitude I have towards my continuous support regarding my preparation for my Internship. I was enrolled in the CSW program. I am more excited about my career choice, and I would recommend the CSW program for anyone that wants to aid their service towards people, society and humanity. I was motivated and prepared to effectively engage in the Program the first day I step into the career service department. Most importantly, the services provided from the career department are unmatched. The continuous support that was in placed to help structured me for my role as a CSW throughout my placement has a great impact towards my success in securing a job. The continuous support and encouragement are greatly appreciated. I have received multiple services and supports that enforce self empowerment and confident in preparation of enduring life skills. My resume was updated every step throughout my journey from searching for my placement to getting multiple interviews and finally successfully getting a job at Unison Health and Community Services as an Outreach Relief Worker. The services that are given motivates you to excel and promotes self reliance to strive for excellence. The gratitude towards all the services that has helped me to transition into a more driven and positive person towards achieving my goals and aspirations was driven from the initiative given in the Career Service department. The professionalism and positive attitude that was demonstrated has helped mold me. I am very honored to be one of many who have been granted such an impeccable service from the career service department at Medix College North York Campus.
As a progressive dermatology clinic I had my concerns of taking on an intern into our busy environment. After careful consideration I did, and this has been a beneficial symbiotic partnership for both our businesses. Since that time I have hired subsequent interns and have obtained positive results with respect to teamwork, knowledge, efficiency, and productivity levels. I would not hesitate to recommend Medix College.
When I started studying at Medix, I was at an age where I needed to start work immediately after the completion of my course. Throughout the whole externship process the career service I received from Medix was exceptionally good and that gave me a great sense of relief. I got a great externship placement and I would not have been able to do so without the help of career services at Medix college. Even after my externship was completed, the career service always helped me find a job placement via email/call. Until I found a placement they never stopped supporting me and helping me to find a great opportunity. I am very grateful for the great career services support at Medix college, specifically Shereen Hayat was the best she would always follow up and make sure I am on the right path.
Valence Medical Imaging has developed a great partnership with Medix College in hosting their students for externship. It is always a delight to welcome students from Medix College. They demonstrate initiative, use effective communication skills and choose to become whole-heartedly involved with the different modalities of our clinic. We believe everyone benefits from this interaction. Students who have shown exceptional aptitudes have been hired by VMI. Medix College has an innovative and dynamic Careers team. Thank you Medix College for your participation.
It is a great pleasure as one of the Medix long term client to be writing this review. Medix students learn a variety of different skills and gain experience in the medical sector while assigned to work in our medical clinics. Through diligent training the students become your right hand as they get use to using the EMR Software, administrative duties, etc. Nonetheless, without hesitation and doubt our company will continue using Medix College and helping their students achieve their career goals.
