Ultimate Medical Academy Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (156)
I have previously taken classes related to healthcare. I got my Billing & Coding Certificate from my local community college about 9 years ago. I've also been employed in the healthcare field for the past 8 years. UMA insisted that I take classes (college English, college math & medical terminology)I had already taken to get my Billing & Coding Certificate in order to get my associate's degree. Also, when I let my advisor know that one course was completely about the Practice Management system I used every day at work and I would like an opportunity to test out of the class, I was told that wasn't an option. What a waste of 5 weeks and several hundred dollars, I got 100% and never even opened the book. Due to the online nature of the program, all my professors stressed proper grammar and spelling; however, I had one professor that had absolutely awful grammar. After graduation, they contacted me on numerous occasions to verify the same information over and over because they couldn't get it right in their system. Had I known then what I know now, that they are not accredited by the BBB or even accredited in every state, would have taken them off my short list of schools.
I choose Ultimate Medical Academy because I was receiving numerous phone calls about furthering my education, it was the best decision that I have made in a very long time. The staff at UMA is wonderful, very supportive and understanding. I have been through so much drama while attending online and they worked with me to give me the best experience ever. I am highly satisfied with UMA and would recommend it to anyone whom would like to "CHANGE THEIR FUTURE"!!!
I have had a great time getting my specialist's diploma from UMA. I was able to work independently and at my own pace which is my style of working. If I had any questions, an instructor was easily accessible. I would recommend UMA to anyone who's looking to get their diploma or degree, especially in the medical field.
My experience was wonderful. The instructors and other staff were awesome. The help and guidance that was offered abdominal accepted was caring and professional. The program exceeded all of my expectations. I would recommend UMA to everyone. The online experience was very positive.
I absolutely love UMA I am almost done with my degree program. I am an ambassador for them and I have made the Dean's list since I have enrolled. I know your thinking wow she is smart, no well maybe a little bit ha ha. Really though it's because the staff and all the resources UMA gives you. They truly care about you and how you are doing in your studies any help you need they are there. If your worried about financial issues they are great with those to. So if you have made the decision to further your education congratulations. If your are thinking about it request some information just talk with someone you won't regret it. #UMAstrong
This is one of the best schools to go to! They are very convenient when you are real busy. There is always someone available if you need help. Online is great! You never feel alone. I recommend this school for anyone looking to advance or start a healthcare career. I love UMA!
I started with UMA in January 2015 taking the Medical Administrative Assistance course and I just seemed to breeze though the classes with ease. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and had been on the Dean's list several times, before I took my final class I decided to further my career by taking the Associate courses. When I started the new course I almost quit because it was extremely hard and I could not figure out how to do it but UMA has the best Academic Coaches who break down the assignments so it is easier to figure out what the instructors want. I graduated top of my class again with a 4.0 GPA and Dean's list. I highly recommend UMA they have Career Specialists who help you get ready to look for a career and to help you find a job and without them I would not have the job I have with a Specialty Pharmacy.
I started with UMA in March of 2015. It was not easy, adjusting to school again since I am 45 years old. I was a trucker for 20 years and decided I wanted to start helping people on a more personal level. Some tips I can give would be these: If you are having trouble, reach out to someone at UMA. They will not give you the answers directly but they will make sure you understand the material you are working on. There labs they have, through out the day, is one of their best features. You have to remember though, they are not mind readers. If you do not reach out to them and ask for help when you need it, you will not learn anything. I am currently working for CVS Specialty in the billing department. I have been so lucky and blessed since I decided to give up trucking. At CVS it is like working with your family. Yes UMA career services lined this job up for me. They couldn't have done a better job, putting me in a place, I fit the most. Anyone who picks UMA will learn if they apply themselves and ask for help when needed. When you pick a school, the most important thing you should ask yourself is, Will I learn at this school and will they get me ready for a new career. I am living proof of that being yes to both questions. I have not driven a truck since July of 2015 and still take home around a 1000 dollars every two weeks. Not a lot of money but I am just getting started in my new career, thanks to UMA.
I started attending UMA in June 2015, I had just finished my medical assistant program and I was trying to decide what to do next. I spoke to a wonderful advisor and she informed me with all my background and training this would be the next step. I have enjoyed my time with UMA and have had such wonderful advisors. I was able to be apart of something big with joining the ambassador program, dean's list and ABK honor society. UMA is the way to go if your looking to further your education.
I leaned about UMA just around the time where I was thinking I may not even go to college. UMA encouraged me to apply, and their online "campus" was the perfect opportunity that I needed to get back on track. I am getting ready to graduate this September and have had a great experience at UMA. I have gotten the help that I needed from Academic Coaches and Financial Aid, have a great Learner's Advisor, and I am ready to graduate with my Associate's degree in my desire field - Health and Human Services.
