Madison Heights campus and their instructors are awesome. I was a student for the medical assistance program and my instructor, Dr. R and Miss BROWN make sure that we were set up for success not failure. They work with us with every detail and of course I asked 99 questions and they were there to answer. I am truly grateful for this campus and this those instructors and all of them is pretty good, but I can only speak on those two and now I’m a graduate of 2024 for medical assistance program they made sure I was ready. Matt made sure I was happy at my career site. I love my career. I am truly happy. I would definitely recommend this campus 5 of 5
