Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

The terms on which I would recommend this school are very circumstantial. I was in a position where I didn't have a very reliable means of transportation, and I had rent and bills to pay, so the half days at one campus worked better for my schedule than full days at multiple campuses (which is the option for my local community college). Please keep in mind that this is an accelerated program, and it is also a "for profit" school. If you withdraw or fail, you will still have to pay back your loans. Also, you are going to be crammed with information (about 2-4 chapters a week) in the course of 8 months. The majority of what is taught is very much on you to retain. The class sizes aren't as small as they say they are because you are joined with another class that has been there for 1 month longer, and your class will be joined by a new class 1 month later. Most of what I learned solidly was on my externship. If you do not study and do your homework, you will not get very good grades, but as long as you study and do your homework, pulling a 4.0 is easy. Also, your credits will not transfer if you want to continue your college education. Basically, it's not a bird course, so don't expect to just fly through this 8 month program. If you don't put in your time by studying and practicing and taking it seriously, and being professional to your peers, then no, you're not going to get a job. I attribute my hard work to my success coupled with this program, but there is definitely room for improvement. Also bear in mind that Concorde is accredited by the AAMA, which is the most prestigious certification for medical assistants. Many schools do not offer this anymore, but, again, a lot of the studying is on you to prepare for that exam.

Degree: Registered Nursing/Registered Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm attending the RN program at Concorde Career College in Memphis. This is a fast paced program and you need to be very dedicated to be successful. I would most definitely recommend this program to other. I believe currently it is an 18 month program which includes general education classes required. This school also has a contract with Christian Brothers if you desire to obtain for BSN. The teaching staff is very knowledgeable in their field. My only negatives are that schedules change slightly. And some of the clinicals sites are up to 100 miles away. These are all things that can be dealt with if Nursing is where you really want to be. This program is good for older adults who feel like they do not have several more years to spend at a traditional college.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Great School! Very hands on! Instructions are very professional and help you with whatever is needed. The staff in general is always there for a helping hand and don't want to see you fail. My rep is R. J. He is by far the best rep in the school!

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

I wouldn't recommend any one to attend this facility it's beyond unorganized and they only want your money. for Dental assisting you can easily just go into a office with no experience and apply. nothing your taught in class is utilized in the real office any way! you get $9-$11 an hour paying $16,000 to the school is not worth this!

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like I learned how to make something of myself here. I've learned a lot and I've learned how to make a career in something I enjoy doing. Enrolling was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I would highly recommend anyone to go here is they want to be successful and to meet great people that only want the best for you.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

By far the best school I have ever seen for healthcare. Absolutely love my experience here!! I would recommend to anybody seeking professional training to come check out this school. I have attended another institute and it was not well organized here at Concorde you will never have to worry about not being helped or having adequate staff to help you on your journey to success.

Everyone there is so helpful and willing to teach you whatever you need to know in order to be successful! The instructors don't just rush through the lessons they make sure you understand all the skills you need to know. Also The building is very clean and well organized. I recommend this school to anyone!

Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2002

Like with all things in life you will get out of it what you put in. We started our program with 21 and graduated 5. This is college and it isn't easy. Most were lost with the first semester, the course work is hard. I had three young kids and managed a full time job, being a mom and graduated top of my class. It was difficult and the instructors helped me when I thought I couldn't go on. Because of their support I had a job before I graduated and have been well prepared for all positions I applied for. I even returned to finish my BS degree through the online program and will be done in a few weeks.

Degree: Respiratory Care Therapy/Therapist
Graduation Year: 2015

I attended the Memphis, Tn Concorde College campus for Respiratory Therapy and just recently graduated. The instructors are amazing and you are fully prepared to start your career immediately after graduating. At times it was extremely challenging but with that comes the ability to graduate sooner than everyone else. I graduated and completed both board exams within a month. This is a great a school for Respiratory Therapy. All of my clinical sites say they prefer hiring Concorde grads because they receive the best training.
