Q3 - What did you like about this program?

What did you like about this program?
The commitment to academic success from the instructors is second to none. The program gives you the skills to
be a successful therapist in an "accelerated" style of learning.
Lab and clinical experiences
The entire program is wonderful.
The time was well split between classroom and lab.
I liked how interactive the program was. Every 2 weeks being in a clinical setting was fantastic.
It was a short and sweet program. The layout was nice.
The great experiences and teaching staff
The teachers were top notch all year, keeping us motivated. The new classroom is wonderful. The clinical
experiences in La Crosse are great.
The lab and clinicals were extremely valuable.
I like the atmosphere. We had a wonderful classroom and labs. Most of all our instructors were amazing. They
were always there for us in any time in need and there was lots of resources available for us.
I like the way that it is set up, it is bit of an accelerated program but you learn a lot of good material and is
organized nicely.
it provided me with all the information i needed

Q4 - What would you change about this program?

What would you change about this program?
More funding so the instructors have the resources to teach with updated and reliable equipment.
rearrange some classes to have sooner, or together.
There are some subjects that I feels should have been taught at other times, but the program is already changing
that for the next class...
I would not change anything.
It would be great if Western eliminated the useless sports teams they have to make way for addition staff for the
clinical setting. There are some preceptors that did not do a very good of teaching students. WE NEED MORE
TEACHERS IN THE CLINICAL SETTINGS!
Maybe just more clinical instructor time at clinical
It would be nice to have a fridge for the class room as well as separating the classes out more.
Having Life Support & Pediatrics go throughout the last semester (Have a few weeks of LS, 1 week of peds, then
switch back to LS) so we get some exposure to neonatal/pediatric cares before the last 3 weeks of school.
I would put ventilators and pediatrics earlier in the curriculum to gain more experience.
I think that it would be nice if we were allowed to have a fridge and microwave in our room. It is an inconvenience
to worry about how to keep food cold/ heat it up and potentially buy food all the time. We spend two years of our
lives in the class room, it would be nice to be accommodated like previous classes have been.
More faculty, only having two instructors can sometimes be a challenge when it comes to clinical time as they are
usually both busy with other things.
wish that we would have started a semester earlier like the 1st years

Q27 - CONCLUSION Please use this space to share any other feedback, comments, or
suggestions about your experience at Western Technical College.
Updating the wellness space and gym should be a high priority in the future. I want to see them have a spacious
gym and wellness space in the future.
It has been a great experience at WesternTC. I have learned so much and have had great opportunities offered to
me.
I feel like first year students should be more involved and included in some of the banquets and activities... maybe
going forward there needs to be a welcome banquet that lays out the opportunities available and gets you feeling
proud before you even get going instead of waiting till the end to feel that way... also, an addition of a liason that
visits the classroom to help encourage students to ask questions and can be program knowledgable and walk
students through things step by step.
less sports teams! More clinical educators besides preceptors!
none
Overall very happy with my experience
Wouldn't take it back for anything, I'm grateful for the education I have received the past few years and am very
happy with the path I've chosen.
All told, I enjoyed my experiences here.
I LOVE respiratory care, and would not have had the foundation I do with out my advisors! They are responsible
for all we have accomplished!
I loved my experience at WTC RT program and feel well prepared for my future career!
it was great i just wish we got to start one semester ahead and used the last semester for more hand on and
review
