"I went to UMA and received my associates in Science with an emphasis in medical billing and coding. I went straight through with a 4.0 which I am proud of!! I graduated in April of 2015 and received a job offer in August of 2015. I was lucky enough to get hired by a dermatologist who owns several clinic's. I am now a medical billing specialist in which I make great money and have wonderful benefits. UMA set me up and gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to succeed in my career. My best friend goes there now as well!! I would recommend Ultimate Medical Academy to anyone going into the medical field."

"Joining UMA was one of the best things I ever did. I was able to get a degree and everyone was so helpful. They would call and check in with you to see if you needed help with anything and praise you for how well you were doing. It was a great experience. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of a wonderful school."

"I did the online for billing and coding. I owe over 15,000 dollars of student loans and I never ever have gotten a offer or hired in that area. People want others because they have experience and their certified. After you finish the schooling you still have to pay out to get certified. Yes the Carreer department tried and help me get a job but not in the area I entered on school for. So I'm stuck at a low paying job going week to week on paychecks and doing absolutely nothing with my degree."

"WORST school ever. They do not hold true to their promises. I am an honor roll student and no response back ever from my new advisor. Asked for a new one still no response. Some instructors you can not even speak with. Terrible school. I wish I would have found WGU University first half the price for the same program."

"I am a recent graduate and I would recommend Uma to everyone. They encourage you and guide you through each process. I struggled a lot with being a full time parent and also holding a full time job. UMA instructors are very helpful and give you options to help you pass. The Live Labs and tutoring sessions were very helpful. They give all the tools you need to be successful. Career Services also keep their promise, They go above and beyond to get their Students into their respected fields. I have a job doing just that thanks to Career Services. Thank you UMA staff for being there for me even when I doubted myself"

"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."
