Getting into Healthcare is an incredibly smart decision. There is job security, always room for advancement as well as personal and professional rewards that can't be beat. Whether you are looking for patient contact hours or wanting a career. Where you go to school makes all the difference. With so many school how do you decided where to go and which program to take.
You need to know not all schools are the same. Be sure you are only considering attending a reputable school that has been around a long time and not a "fly-by-night" school. Check with the Michigan Proprietary School Unit, to see if the school you are looking at is licensed. Medright, Inc. has been a licensed school providing healthcare education for 20 years.
Not all curriculums are the same. Just as not all schools are the same, curriculums are not all the same.
What is taught in one course may not be taught in the same course at a different school. The state of Michigan
does not determine what is or is not taught in a particular program. That is up to each individual school.
This should be a very important factor in deciding which school you attend. Ask questions about their curriculum.
What will you learn in the program. Will it provide you with the skills you seek and lead to employment opportunities.
Medright, Inc.'s Phlebotomy Program is hands down the most comprehensive program in the state. We teach out
students everything they need to know to be professional Phlebotomists as well as Specimen Processors.
Accredited or not accredited. This is a very important question. There are several agencies that schools can
be accredited by. Some are legitimate and recognized by hospitals others simply have a name that sounds good
but are of no value. These are called "accreditation mills" they are intended to mislead the prospective student and
often result in harm to the patients. Hospitals and employers will not recognize these certificates / credentials. leaving
the student out of money and a waste of time. Shady schools count on students not checking into legitimate accreditation. Medright, Inc. has been accredited from the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences, NAACLS, since 2000. We are the only proprietary school in the state of Michigan with a Phlebotomy Program that is accredited by NAACLS.
Clinical Rotations:Experience is everything. Be sure the school you are considering provides you with a Clinical Rotation. This is a valuable experience in which students are placed in a major hospital system to draw blood on actual patients, not merely other students. Medright, Inc. students are highly sought after. We have hospitals contacting us wanting our students at their hospitals. The hospital see the Clinical Rotation as a job interview. Many of our students accept job offers where they performed their clinical rotation.
