Medix prepared me for my field by giving me the hands-on training. I got lots of lab experience. Working on other students, it wasn't all just theory; there was a lot of hands on.
I had a very knowledgeable instructor who worked with everybody and was always there to help. Mornings, evenings, weekends, and then with a great placement that gave me all my hands on training, exactly what I was studying for.
It was easy to find work after graduation; I was placed at a really good placement where I got lots of hands on skills and knowledge which helped me on my resume to get a job right away.
