 I graduated with an AS in the Sports Medicine Program at Keiser University (Lakeland Campus) 2008...   I went in with the impression that I could pursue a good career with this degree and after speaking with admissions signed up for the program.....  According to the literature I could choose several different avenues with this degree... I do understand it was only a 2 year (perhaps later would pursue my bachelors but for the meanwhile this was going to be just fine)..    The literature  and information given by admissions to potential students was absolutely false!!!!   Example) They advised one could be a Physcial Therapy Assistant with this degree..   I think the only thing that was on the career list that was accurate was Personal Trainer, however they also failed to tell you that you needed to get a certification in this field .. NO one really cares about a sports med degree employers look at certfication.. 

 I, along with other students as time went on grew frustrated, the program was so unorganized. There was one (1) instructor for the entire program.. I wont knock him, I thought he was good. Whats funny he ended up leaving!!!   

Keiser also promises job placement...  What is so pathetic near the end, the lady in charge of job placement had NO CLUE what students could do with this degree.. She asked me if I had any ideas.. I replied "shouldn't you know this"?      I submitted resume after resume and absolutely had no luck..  I  even went to the Dean, and other staff members and of course they were clueless too...  I felt helpless but kept hope...
 
Oh, last and final thing.. Students had to do internships to complete their degree.. The instructor was left in charge to find these places for they were not even established yet for this program...   I really wished Keiser could be forced to pay my student loans.... This degree is so worthless and I am stuck with an enourmous amount of student loans!!!  If I would on known what I know now, I would of never signed up for this program..

RE: Keiser

AUTHOR: Angel - (U.S.A.)

My husband Attended the first ever radiation therapy classes in melbourne florida, 
  After spending 2 years  and only missing 2 days of class he passed with a very high grade, When he signed up for the ARRT testing to take his state boards he was horrified to find that everything on the test was nothing they covered in classes, He was unable to pass this test, He later found out that the only 2 people in his class that did pass the test already had degrees int he medical field so this was prior knowledge they had,
  Its just very frustrating, It would be one thing if he went in and bombed the class and made comments like " i knew this material" "i studied all this already" but he was dumbfounded, he knew less than half of the material.

Lets mention also the fact that when he first started the class they were all basicly self taught for the first 4 months because the teacher they had waas insanely rediculous, He would teach them from one book and test them on another, The school did eventually fire this teacher and add all new teachers, 

Just before my husband was set to graduate we had taken my son to keiser to sign up for classes and the administrater who signs you up kept going on and on about how he should sign uo for rad therapy because thier very first class already graduated and all had jobs and my husband looked at her and said really? so they have ALL graduated already and are all working and she said yes we are so proud of them and my husband says to her well thats funny because i am int he first classs and we dont graduate for 3 more months, she didnt know what to say,
