Transcription: My name is Shanese, and I'm here for medical assisting here at Midwest Institute. I chose Midwest Institute for the simple fact the classes are smaller, and it's more hands on. And with the classes being smaller, the teacher has more time to deal with me personally. So the teacher can make sure that you have the information that you need in order to pass whatever test you need to pass. I would recommend Midwest Institute to anyone. They have different programs here, and it can get you further in life and further your education.
