I’ve had amazing experience at Abcott Institute, from my first day all the way till my placement. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Abcott brought out the passion in me that I actually didn’t even know I had. I will be now working as a medical assistant and I plan to continue my further education in the same school.
Great experience! I learned more than I had expected. My instructors were fantastic and very helpful. As hands-on-training is quite important in surgical technician training, I really liked the way our instructors used examples and visual aids to make things easier for us.
