Since I was a kid I’ve been dreaming to be part of the medical field, Allen school fulfilled my dreams. They have the best of the best, from the management, professors and staff. I’ve learn a lot from them from enhancing my typing skills to drawing blood. I know I made the right choice and I will be forever thankful to my professors in sharing their knowledge selflessly. I am proud of my school because they taught me everything that I need to learn and they prepared me to be an efficient and effective Medical Assistant in the professional world.By experiencing how to draw blood with real people and not just by mannequins is just one reason out of many that make us more confident and ready. All my professors motivate me to do my best and they give me reasons to wake up everyday and go to school enthusiastically. They also make it sure that your hard work will never be taken for granted, they always give credits for your good deeds but of course if they feel like you need some help they will not hesitate to teach you again and again until you get it. In summary choosing to be part of the Allen School is the best choice I’ve ever made in my life. So Allen School, my professors, my classmates and staff Thank you and Congratulations!!! LEAH GOT HIRED OFF OF HER INTERNSHIP!

I found Allen School by the grace of God. I searched high and low and every school I encountered didn’t fit my schedule. I worked 8 hours as a pharmacy technician in the Bronx. I decided to change my career and signed up and took the night shift. The school was very hands-on and the teachers were great.I thank Linda for having the confidence in me to take this big career change and dedication to complete this task. With 3 hours of sleep and not being 20 years old anymore, and with children, I did it and so can you! Thank you Allen School! Jenelle is a graduate of the Medical Assistant program and is currently attending our Medical Insurance Billing and Coding Program.

Walking Into Allen School to sign up for the medical assistant program after not being in a class­room in over 25 years. I had all sorts of feelings. I was excited because I was following my dreams. Scared, anxious. and complete horror for the fear of failing. When I walked through Denises’ door at Allen she welcomed me like she was part of my family. she encouraged me like one of my sisters. Denise was Just the first of many administrators and faculty at Allen that help me along my way to following my dream.When I was asked why I wanted to get into this program. my response was,” it’s been a life-long dream and I wanted to follow in my grandmothers footsteps to help heal people.” My sisters and mom encouraged me to follow my hearts desire and they’ve been my cheering section, with my daughter leading the pack. They were always there for me (near and far), supporting me with words of encouragement when I wanted to give up. Many times throughout my time at Allen I wanted to give up and walk away from the program because of many personal issues; losing my job. my car breaking down and family dilemmas.The staff at Allen become more like on extended family the more I got to know them. They try their hardest to help you succeed. Angel Gardener is my guardian angel at Allen. she wouldn’t let me give up. Mrs. Luke who always had good, sound advice when I needed it. To all my teachers. I can never thank you enough for sharing the knowledge that you have with me and putting up with my laughter. jokes and smiles. The experience I had at Allen might be way different then anyone one else. but I can say this, If someone at my age and all the curve balls that were thrown at me can complete the Medical Assistant program than Just about anyone can. I give thanks to all that didn’t let me quit and saw the potential In me. As Ghandi said “You must be the change you want to see in this world” Carpe diemGERALDINE GOT HIRED AT HER INTERNSHIP SITE!

My experience at the Allen school was a great one. Becoming a Medical Assistant was my number one goal and the Allen school helped me making it a successful one. I feel as though the teachers and staff push you to reach your potential. Nussy in the Career Services Department has helped me in finding my internship site- Garden OB/GYN. I feel because of her guidance I was able to complete my program and also got hired at my internship site! The hands on skills I learned while at the Allen School and on internship will help me to continue being successful here in my new position. I must say thank you to the all the teacher and staff at the Allen school for helping me reach my goal today.

Ana Suarez

I enjoyed being at the Allen School.The teachers were very helpful and eager to teach every student. They became like family. This school has taught me so much and opened me up to new experiences that I will apply in life. I grew to love all my classmates and teachers. I would recommend anyone to the Allen School. You have to be focused, determined, and ready to be in a different environment. Martha in Career Services is great – she is very helpful and you always feel welcomed. Thank you Allen School. I’m glad I got the opportunity to be here. Update: Ana completed her internship yesterday and she just got hired as a Medical Assistant at another office!

The Allen school impacted me personally and professionally. It made me realize that is never late to do what is in my mind and give me more confidence in myself. The classroom environment was great – it was like being in a classroom in person. I created a very good relationship with classmates, a group of them started the same day as me and we were in the class until the last day. One classmate even visited me from Ohio and it was very nice to see him in person. New students can expect a lot. They are going to learn so much about new stuff that they didn’t have any idea on like the hospital rules and regulations. Career development is so great because you learn how to believe in yourself at the time of an interview and how to be confident. Students just need to follow the teachers and listen. If they don’t understand something they can go back to the recording, that right there is amazing that you can go back and review the material. I wish I knew that the recording were so important early on. I’m very exited to be graduate and start a new career in a field that I love. I really appreciate Allen School for giving me a comfortable environment since day one.

The Allen School. .. one of the best decisions I ever made. From day one, I had an amazing experience at this school. The admission process itself was a cake walk. The staff is very professional, they know their job, and they do it well. The teachers are always willing to assist. They prepare you well for your jobs, and help you reach those dream goals you once thought were unachievable. Nick was hired off internship at New York Hand Surgery – Dr. Patel. He loved his experience there, and the site loved him!! After a few months of being employed there, he got a job as a Medical Assistant at Weill-Cornell.

Allen School gave me the opportunity to start a new career. I have started my new career in a new state. Without the encouragement from the instructors at Allen School I don’t know if I would have been able to do this. I enjoyed the classroom experience and the friendships with the instructors and fellow classmates. I will always remember my time with these friends. I would tell those just starting out with Allen School to enjoy your time with the people you meet. I did not know how close I would come to people I never met in person. The instructors really do care about you and they are very willing to help you in anyway they can. I am very excited to have graduated and have already started my new career as an abstractor with Optum in Tennessee. The things I learned at Allen School helped me to be able to step out into the unknown and start a new career not just another job. Thank you for all the help you have given me.

My name is Dorothy Dube. I graduated on the 6™ of February 2016 as a Medical Assistant. I am truly proud lo have been a student of the Allen School of Health Sciences. It was an awesome experience of perseverance and dedication. I learned so much about the human anatomy and different conditions that affect us as human beings. skills to determine conditions, to help with diagnosis and treatments along with Administrative skills needed for this field. all thanks to the dedicated and informed tutoring of our professors. Thanks to each and every one of them I was able to graduate and follow the career of my choosing. Career Services is a very helpful and supporting deportment. My experience with the staff have been phenomenal. They are always there with helpful advice and encouragement. They should be truly commended for their support to the students and their efforts to place the students after they are graduated. I personally found placement three weeks after graduation. Thanks to the dedication and perseverance of the Career department staff. Thank you Guys. Especially Miss Yelixsa Mattehews- God bless you. I am presently employed by Dr. Shazad Soni’s office as a Medical Assistant and I must say that it has been a God send. I feel totally at home and appreciated. I am still in a learning situation since this field is a constant learning process. I consider myself very fortunate for the opportunity to practice what I was taught of the Allen School and I would recommend this institution to all those who are considering a change or upgrade of career, regardless of age or gender. I also have the privilege of helping one other student that is doing her internship at this office. If I was every asked if I would consider doing this course at Allen School again, I would shout at the top of my voice “YES I WOULD” Thanks Everyone.

“I love my internship experience. I get to do everything that I learned at the Allen School. I love the support I get from Dr. Sadacka (internship supervisor). The entire experience has been amazing. I have become a better person in life. I am not even getting paid for my internship, and I love to wake up in the morning to go to my site in my scrubs. I am having fun doing it all at the same time – receptionist, medical assisting, inventory, computers, EHR, and assist the doctor with patients. I am a new person because of the Allen School staff. I really appreciate everybody. The staff is so nice, and the support is outstanding. I really recommend the Allen School if you are ready for a new future. The quote that started all of this was, “I wish, I want, I will start my future today.”Yudelka got hired at her internship site before she even graduated! Sadacka Medical Office Medical Assistant
