To Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank ACI Medical and Dental School for assisting my wife, Shari, and myself with beginning a new career in the medical field.
After spending the last 33 years in the US Army, my wife and I were both able to take advantage of the post 911 GI Bill® while attending a school that is clearly military friendly.
The unique environment ACI Medical and Dental School provides is fostered by expert, professional and diligent staff members. Both Shari and I found our experiences to be exemplary of an inspirational environment in which you can successfully achieve the school’s mission of providing post-secondary education to individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and all levels of work experience.
Because of the education we received from ACI Medical and Dental School, Shari was able to find employment through Hackensack Meridian as a Medical Assistant; and my attendance in the Medical and Dental Administrative Assistant program increased my appetite for more education. Therefore, I am currently also attending the Medical Assistant Program in the hopes of learning more about the medical field in order to apply my knowledge and experience in either capacity once completed and credentialed in the field.
BLUF… if you want to retool for the civilian sector, come to ACI Medical and Dental School.
To Whom it may concern,
In August 2016, I enrolled in ACI Medical and Dental School’s Medical Assistant program which included
EKG, Phlebotomy, and Patient Care Technician. By taking advantage of the post 911 G.I Bill®, ACI allowed
me to re-hone my medical skills that I obtained through out my 17 years in the U.S. Army.
The environment at ACI is not only military friendly, it also provided me with instructors that are experts
in their field. The entire staff at ACI is always available to answer any questions and/or assist you with
any problems or concerns that you may have.
The education I received at ACI allowed me to gain employment at Centrastate Medical Center as a
Patient Care Technician on the Progressive Care Unit. All the patients on this unit have Cardiac (heart)
related conditions. The knowledge I obtained at ACI allowed me to sharpen my skills in Patient Care and
EKG. These skills were recognized by Centrastate Medical Center on numerous occasions in which I
received Centra Stars for going above and beyond.
I’m re-attending ACI to take their Medical and Dental Administrative Assistant program with Electronic
Health Records and Billing and Coding. I have no doubt in my mind that ACI will once again prove to
have the expert instructors and staff, to provide me with the knowledge to gain employment, to which
my clinical background and my newly acquired administrative knowledge will make me an asset to any
I would highly recommend ACI Medical and Dental School.
I can’t say enough about the program. From start to finish the staff are hands on helping the student with identifying a career path, helping to be successful in the classroom setting and then helping with career placement. They focus on the whole student and will address deficiencies immediately to make sure that they get addressed early on, so that everyone is successful. They have a high success rate and from what I’ve seen they have a high success rate of graduates finding employment either prior to or shortly after graduation. They have reasonable classroom sizes. They have tutoring available twice a week. 6 weeks of the program is done in the classroom, then 6 weeks in clinical rotation, along with an internship. The staff really goes above and beyond to make sure that the student’s experience is positive.
I can personally attest to one of my veterans going through this program and being successful. He is 100% service connected for PTSD and other physical injuries (not unemployable) and was able to be successful in this academic setting. The instructors helped to make sure that his experience in the classroom was so that he wasn’t uncomfortable and decrease the number of stressors he was under. This allowed him to be successful. He was then placed at CentraState Hospital where during his internship they offered him a job. He had a job before he even completed the certification program.
