I totally liked the school. I graduated and worked as an MA. I feel that MASH did their job in teaching me the skills I needed to be an effective MA. This is not to say that there were no students who had a difficult time with the subjects .... Because there were. I remember one of my classmates getting angry and the previous disgruntled reviewers felt they were being picked on and felt belittled. Mu classmate was also trying to help some of us to leave the school because all they just wanted our money. But i explained as i am saying here, if you need help, ask. Study harder, longer, and read. You cant get this stuff thru.osmosis! LOL! MASH has been teaching this program for over 20 yrs and then do have it down. Its just that you have to study, not have a bad attitude and remember that the instructors really do know their subject matter. I have jad some pretty tough teachers, even after MASH, but they were the ones i actually learned something really important and i retained that knowledge. MASH is a great school, 9 months and externship. That hadn't changed. I learned a lot from the courses offered. Keep in mind that learning doesn't end once graduated, its a continual process.

I read the reviews and have to agree that you get what you put into it. If you are upset because you failed a test, then hey, you weren't listening nor did you study. You take tests to see how much you understood the subject. You are given a syllabi at the start of the class and it explains the objectives and grading scale. But if you cannot understand that simple reading and apply it to your course work then medical care taker may mot be your field. I'm. sorry, but the two prior reviews sounds like people who did not do well. I went to MASH because they are locally owned, they have been teaching medical asst for over 20 yrs and i understood that this was a starting place to a bigger and better future in medicine. I learned enough to move myself forward and continue to learn, not just in the classroom but at work too. I guess that's why there are succeeders and the 'others' who wiill always blame others for their non advancements. I have always wanted to work in healthcare, and i am glad that i started here, because this initial step continued my journey. The other thong i want to say is that as a student at MASH i didnt get into the 'drama'. I made friends at school, but i didnt participate in the gossip or clicks that people tend to form. I kept my educational objectives priority. There were people like me, there to learn and i was glad that not everyone was immature.

I myself have attended Med-Assist as well and on some parts I agree with the last review but not on most. School is place for learning but in order to learn you need teach yourself as well. I have also been enrolled and attended two other universities and I feel that the "hands on" and "one-on-one" ratio is a lot better. Compared to a 300:2 student teacher ratio, Med-Assist has about a 10:1. I feel that if you are a visual learner Med-Assist provides that technique.

I do understand that maybe the one student who bought the gloves was trying to help and that it was uncalled for the teacher to burst out yelling. I do understand the teacher's side, maybe he felt that the student was trying to do his job. But I'm not the teacher or that student so I do not know the whole story.

Yes the school is not the cheapest but if you think about it, university tuition is much more expensive. Not only Med-Assist student fail, there are students that go to universities that fail every semester. You can not succeed without experiencing failure. Just know that the school does not necessarily appoint you a grade, basically you have to earn it. The grading system is set in stone. The teacher will give you the grade they deserve. As for the students if you try your best, that is all that you can give. Say you try your best and you still do not succeed, you still gain the knowledge and you know what you need to work on.

Yes I do agree that at times some teachers are hard to confront but part of being mature adults looking to be medical assistants is to be able to communicate with people with all types of personalities.

As for testing I may add that there should be multiple versions and strict protocol when going over the tests so the "questions and answers" are not passed on between old to new students.

Pharmacology is strict because administering medication is very vital. Would you like to be overdosed by your medical assistant? I know I would definitely not want that. In order to get into the school the English placement test is what is reviewed, when you take the math it shows where you stand and where you need to improve. You forgot to mention that the school does offer tutoring and extra help, all you really have to do is ask.

I just wanted to enter my own review and add that yes this school is not perfect but i do have to disagree with the last review saying that this school is horrible. What school is perfect?
