“I had been considering medical school for a while, but didn't know if it was right for me. I enrolled in the Clinical Training Practice Program and that was one of the best decisions I made in college. It is also one of the most valuable experiences any student can get while an undergrad. The courses were difficult, but the instructors delivered the material in a way that sparks your intellectual curiosity. They gave you real life patient scenarios that they went through themselves and challenged you to come up with treatment plans and alternatives beyond what you thought you could handle. I wish I had them for all my undergrad classes and my MCAT prep course too! ”
“I have attended BLS and First Aid training for over a decade and it has become a drag to recertify every two years. This year, I decided to recertify with AMPHS on the advice of a colleague, and I was extremely impressed. You could really tell the instructor cared for each student and wanted you to succeed. AMPHS also kept the class size quite small so you instantly became friends with your peers and the instructor. Most of all, I actually walked away from the class learning something new even though I had been taking this certification course for 10+ years!”
“I attended several AMPHS community seminars on healthy aging, nutrition, and emergency response. It was really fun - the facilitators keep us engaged and took a personal approach when delivering the workshop. Even though I never learned CPR before, I walked away feeling confident I can actually save a life. The teachers never rushed us if we took longer than usual to learn a skill, their main concern was that we felt confident with the clinical knowledge. They made it a personal mission to make sure I mastered the entire sequence of performing CPR before I left their classroom, and just their approach made me want to learn it even more.”
