The faculty and staff at GMC really care about their students. They work hard to set them up for success after graduation. GMC made the difference by helping me find a job to put my new skills to use.
After visiting many schools, it was obvious that Galaxy is where I belonged. This school gave me the future I envisioned for myself. With guidance from the faculty and staff, I gained the knowledge and skills that today allow me to have a career I love. Thank you for opening the doors to my future!
In addition to the structured curriculum, educated faculty, and hands-on training, GMC offered the best externship program where I gained the confidence to put my skills to use. As a medical assistant, I am proud to have a career where I help people everyday. I would recommend Galaxy Medical College to all my family and friends.
I joined Galaxy Medical College for the Medical Assistant Program in 2013, by far one of the best decisions I have made. After I graduated with Galaxy’s help, I was hired as an MA. Galaxy stayed in touch and later worked a miracle, helping me find a new amazing job at one of the nation’s top hospitals, Kaiser Permanente. In 2016, I decided to return to school at GMC to broaden my knowledge and entered the Pharmacy Technician program.
Galaxy changed my life completely. My favorite part of Galaxy Medical College was the atmosphere and the instructors who would go out of their way to give every student a chance to be successful. Without them I would not be able to provide for my family the way I currently am because of my career. They believed in me and pushed me to do better and believe in myself.
Sixteen years ago I was an 18 year-old high school graduate, walking across the stage as a mother of a three-month-old daughter. I would have never imagined then that I would be here today. From the first moment I stepped foot into Galaxy Medical College, the amazing staff and teachers made becoming a pharmacy technician as easy and as motivating as possible. They supported me, guided me, and helped me through every step of the way. This accomplishment has been so life changing for me and for my family. I am so proud to be such a great role model for my children. It is never too late to pursue your goals in life and to succeed as an individual.
Getting the right education is important and you’ll get it at GMC for sure! Coming to this college, I was really pleased with all the teachers and staff. The amount of work and time they put into every student is amazing. The best feeling is when you start working after an amazing educational year.
I am very happy that I decided to attend Galaxy Medical College. Without the education and skills I gained, I would have never been able to have my dream job. I am now a Pharmacy Technician at a reputable hospital working in the ER. Galaxy gave me the opportunity to change my life!
