I was a little bit hesitant at first to do a health-related course online since I learn best in person. I was very comfortable throughout this course and was able to make sure to fully learn topics before going ahead. I really liked the self-pace portion of this course because I could focus on areas where I felt like I was not as strong and strengthen those areas. The instruction and feedback really helped to solidify my understanding of all of the topics and it was nice to be able to interact with other students going through the program. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in become a Clinical Medical Assistant or has further interest to go into the medical field!

I was always hesitant to go for my medical assistant because college was already expensive enough and working full-time + volunteering + other stuff didn’t leave me much free time to fully commit to an MA program. However, as soon as I heard about this opportunity I jumped right in! Not only is it considerably more affordable than other courses, but you can also complete it at your own pace from the comfort of your home! I never felt like I wasn’t receiving the proper support nor like I was going through it alone. The teachers respond to you w/in a day usually and the amount of resources available is just amazing! They make sure you really understand all the concepts given. Honestly, I had the best experience and hope they can keep growing because more pre-health students need to hear about Advanced eClinical Training!

This course is great for anyone wanting to pursue a degree in the medical field and needs to get those patient care hours without having to start a whole different career to the one they intend to go to. It was was very thorough and lots of lab simulations to help you practice and understand concepts within the course. Ultimately the instructors were very helpful and feedback was thorough as well. This is a self paced course in which a national exam is taken at the end to gain a healthcare certificate, this is great for people who have a lot going on at the same time but need to gain something to stand out in their applications

This course has been exactly what I was hoping for and more. The material that they provide to you is there and it is a matter of taking the time to learn it. I found all the material very informational and interesting. I feel confident in being able to pursue a career in the medical field since this course introduces you to procedures, terminology, and etiquette. The course is easy to navigate and if you ever encounter an issue, the instructor is just an email away. Almost all of the material provided was not cumbersome to understand or grasp. The simulations and assignments were honestly the best part to me besides the text in the form of PDFs, ppt, etc. since it was most interactive being able to test your knowledge and practice. I would recommend this to anyone, and I know for a fact, that they take feedback seriously and do a good job of implementing it. As I did the course, I noticed that they would update past sections and always change things up a bit. So, you can feel comfortable knowing you are learning the most up-to-date information.
