“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.”

Computers, hard drives, mobile phones, cameras, and portable media storage have all gotten smaller. The medical field is no stranger to this trend. Almost 5 decades ago, diabetic patients carried a large back-pack size insulin pump. Through modernization and an invention by Dean Kamen, a miniature device can now do the same thing as a cell-phone sized device or implant under the skin today.
