1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I really enjoyed the program, we had a great group of students and a awesome group of
instructors. All the classes were good and we were given the information we needed to be
sucuessful.
I liked that a lot of the learning was hands on. It really helped me learn the material.
I liked how hands on everything was and how we got to practice our skills.
the variety in skills learned or performed
hands on activities
I liked the oppurtunity to be able to do hands on things
The hands on experiences
I loved the teachers, and how they would help us with anything we needed. I also liked how to
classes were so hands on and you got to practice things and not just stare at a power point all
day.
I like it was hands on. Took time with most things. Wish there was more time.
The organization of the program was great.
I liked everything about the program! It was a great experience
All of the experiences we had

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
I really dont think I would change anything about the program I feel that everything was great
and set up well.
nothing
I don't have anything that I would change.
giving the option of online courses besides for generals
more online classes available, do not have the same teacher teach all core classes
I think they need to get more up to date equipment
pharmacology - possible an online class or more of a blended class
It is a very intense program. They jam pack all this information in a year time frame and it may
help some students better understand things if it was 2 years or a year and a half.
That more course were more hands on in certain classes and less tests. Didnt like it was fast
paced sometime. Less lecture..
More in depth study guides, so you know more of what needs to be known.
Nothing! This program was amazing including the teachers
the homework all due in one time
maybe having different teachers for different classes, and making some classes like
pharmacology and med office more online or blended.

Actually running through situations in class really helped. Talking to class mates as they were
patients.
I learned how to appropriately identify myself to patient's.
There was only on class on the administration part of this course, I wish there would have been
a little more such as how to answer the phone correctly if needed. The skills we learned how to
talk with patients was great.
Instructors were great about getting back to me with any of my questions or concerns.

Text Response
I learned a lot about math, and it really was great to see that I can do it!
Amy taught us great and I learned a lot more with the med math than I thought I would.
I learned how to do medication dosages correctly and efficiently.
medication math only
They did a brief section on med math which you use for the injections. It was a short time and
went really fast. Being able to do that though out the course could be benificial
Need more time with it.

with it. This program prepared me for this in many ways.
