Medix College (Canada) Reviews - Certificate in Medical Assistant
Taking up the MLAT course was a good and fun experience. I've met a lot of new people and learned a lot from the teachers who are so great and helpful to all the students. I hope that the Toronto Campus would continue doing there best.. Overall, EXCELLENT!!
Studying to Medix as medical laboratory assistant student gives you a lots of learning about your program and help you prepare in a real world that your going after your program. You will learn to work with everybody, learn to communicate on the site that your going to work. And as a bonus they will prepare you for you interview for your externship and help you to fix your resume, that is very helpful.
As a student who previously attended University, I was and am still appalled by the way Medix "college" conducts business and teaches/interacts with their students. The tuition breakdown is ambiguous and when wanting an appropriate breakdown of "placement costs" I was continuously bounced between the financial aid person and the campus director. As suggested by the breakdown given all students in this program pay 2400 dollars that encompasses placement and fees assosicated with it such as insurance however for this particular program three quarters of my class had to spend an additional 800 dollars to obtain a placement. Furthermore, this was never suggested to us as an intake nor is it in the admissions contract. The quality of instruction is poor and due to the continuous intake the school works with modules not terms which allows for rotating numbers. A lot of material was delivered as a basic point form with the instructor stating "you dont need to know this but OSMT requires us to teach it" then when students go to write the official exams the feedback is that there is material not taught and they felt unprepared. I appreciate and value education nd was excited to return to school. The level of academics was elementary which allowed me to never study and still obtain honor roll. This should be indicative of quality itself. As phlebotomy is an essential part of the program when it was suggested and confirmed fellow students were self injecting drugs, and concern was brought to the director of education it was dismissed as gossip with little care for how it could implicate the remaining students despite the evidence. As we are students learning on each other, yes all phlebotomy is performed and learned on each other, it was of serious concern the potential for transmitting infection by complete accident. In a nutshell, as there are too many examples as to why a potential student should look for alternative schools it can be simply stated Medix is completely profit driven with little care to the quality of student and education it retains.
It was a great experience, the teachers, the staff, very helpful and friendly.
Terrible school! My placement sucked! Got no hands on training. Was left to "set up" a Doctor's office by myself with no experience or any help the first day I started there. Got no hands on training with vital signs (which the students were told we would be doing). It's all about the money at this school. The course itself was a great learning experience. I learned a lot about human anatomy. Of course, I shouldn't have spent $11,000 learning about that! I wonder if the teachers have anything to do with your hiring at your placement, If so, I'd say favoritism is a big factor with that! I would never recommend this school to anybody.
