Gurnick Academy was the first step to my career. They were my first step to my success in Kaiser. I attended the Medical Assisting program in 2017 and a little after got hired at Kaiser in 2018. One of the things that made my experience fun and succesful were my teachers. I feel like my teachers helped me a lot because they themselves were medical assistant at one point in life and knew what the physician wanted from their medical assistants. I was hands on everyday with procedures we do everyday in a clinic setting. Being hands on helped me especially because it’s an easier way to learn for me instead of reading a book. We met a lot of new people with different backgrounds in our class but we were all there for one reason and it was to graduate as a medical assistant and we all accomplished that. We graduated with 4 certifications and a great lifetime experience. Now im trully happy working at Kaiser in the Orthopedics department, and I could not have done it without Gurnick. I recommend a lot of my friends to this program because I don’t feel like they are other teachers like mine. Gurnick is the best and if Medical Assisting is not for you there’s other opportunities to chose from.
