General Richard B. Myers and Kristin Dickerson on NBC DFW Talk Street discussing Veterans Programs at Medisend College of Biomedical Engineering Technology
Get your future started today!
Medisend’s Certificate Program and AAS Degree Program are the most comprehensive and hands-on education and training available today. Learning and working on a full suite of biomedical equipment, graduates are employment ready for a growing career as professional biomedical technicians.
Veteran AAS Graduate Employed: SIEMENS I enrolled into the Medisend College of Biomedical Engineering Technology because I wanted to enter the biomedical field while still utilizing the technical skills I learned in the military. My aim was to obtain a good job to support my family, while continuing toward my future career as a biomedical engineer. The General Richard B. Myers Veterans Program helped me accomplish this goal and exceeded my expectations. The program is designed based on input from potential employers, so it provides a good baseline of knowledge for the work I will be performing with SIEMENS. The school was able to get me interviews that I probably wouldn’t have been able to get, considering I’m just starting in this field. The goal of the program is for graduates to secure employment with healthcare industry leaders, and I am extremely satisfied with my outcome!
Tyson Jelinek 2017 Veteran AAS Graduate Employed: Henry Schein Transitioning out of the Marine Corps, I wasn’t quite sure what my next move should be. I knew that I wanted to work on things and somehow help people by doing so. Upon doing research I learned of Medisend College and thought it would be a great choice since I wanted to start work as soon as possible while earning an accelerated degree. Nick, Stephanie, and Eyejan answered all of my questions and set me up right away to start classes. My overall experience was positive, and the instructors and staff cared about each student and their progress. The skills I acquired while attending Medisend College significantly helped with my job offer from Henry Schein. If I could do it over again I would in a heartbeat. Huge thank you to the staff and instructors at Medisend for serving those who served, and making the transition as smooth as possible into a promising career field.
Louis Washington 2017 Veteran AAS Graduate Employed: Henry Schein “The decision to come to Medisend College was strictly based upon faith. Since leaving the Navy, I had the desire to finish my degree and make a career change. The change would not come easy being away from family without employment. As CEO Nick Hallack explained to me over the phone before attending, “It would be a short term sacrifice for a long term gain”. Medisend College not only supported the other veterans and me, but went above and beyond to insure our success. The hands on training and knowledgeable instructors who have actually worked in the field really created a skill set within us that set us apart from other job candidates. While training in Dallas, hurricane Harvey devastated my hometown of Houston, Texas. Friends and family lost more than ever before. For the first time in my life the flood waters reached our property. However, when it came time to travel back to access the damages, Medisend College offered to help my family and I with whatever was needed. Upon arrival Henry Schein was one of the first companies I noticed really helping to get Houstonians care and essentials. As faith would have it, MediSend College and Henry Schein began collaborating to fill the need for highly skilled graduates ready to enter the industry. I am pleased to become Medisend’s first college graduate offered a position with Henry Schein Dental Division servicing Houston, Texas.
Yahya Hasan Alnakhli 2016 International BMET Graduate GE El Seif, Saudi Arabia Biomedical Engineer, Section Head King Khalid University Hospital, Saudi Arabia “I don’t know how to start, but my experience at Medisend was great! Actually, they have a very nice program that covers the most important medical devices. Medisend also has a very qualified and cooperative staff (personally, I benefited a lot from them). I enjoyed every moment there. I met wonderful friends and I do not forget to thank them for the beautiful time I spent with them. Also, I will never forget the internship with Touchstone Medical Imaging (a Medisend partner). It was a fun and exciting period for me. I benefited from my time and studies with Medisend in the United States during that period and discovered new cultures in various fields including medical and engineering fields. Thanks to Medisend!”
Nyemah Muhlenburg 2016 International BMET Graduate World Health Organization Biomedical Technician Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Republic of Liberia “I write to express my gratitude and joyfulness for the many updates since our departure from Medisend, in the US. I am glad to be a part of an institution that cares about its students even in their absence; not only that, but an institution that proved to promote the reputation of their students wherever they are. I am so proud, well knowledged, skilled and enlightened in the field of biomedical equipment technology that I can independently work and boost up from what I learned at Medisend. Medisend has brought a new light and gave me the knowledge and understanding to see the bigger picture of what it is to be a biomedical equipment technician and how it relates to saving lives. Therefore, I want to extend my thanks to my government for affording me this opportunity at Medisend. Also, I want to say thanks all my instructors, including my Medisend family.”
