UMA executives expect every employee to listen carefully to any student concerns.

UMAs mission is to be a dynamic career school committed to empowering students to excel in the healthcare field.

The students of Ultimate Medical Academy are the groundwork of UMAs outstanding reputation. UMA realizes that without successful students, they would not have the extraordinary, innovative programs they offer today.

They do the job hunting for you.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Ultimate Medical Academy It's all about the money to UMA Clearwater Florida
Ultimate Medical Academy promises a lot, but the promises are empty. When speaking to an advisor before attending classes, one is promised so much. Especially what is underscored is that one would be working in the medical field, where there are always jobs.
The classes were described to me as being six months long for an MCLA (Medical Clinical Lab Assistant). In fact, there are four mods which are about a month long each. So much work is crammed into that time to get students in and out of the school. It is almost like an assembly line. Into school, cram a lot of teaching into a short period, then out on externship.
After the four months of schooling one is given an externship site. For an MCLA, one must extern for 180 hours.
The complaint about the classes crammed together is because a student may have an issue with a medical clinical procedure, but is passed anyways. Other technical schools in the area ensure that all medical clinical procedures are done correctly at least fifteen times before the student may pass the class.
For the amount of money the school charges, the students deserve much better treatment. The faculty should care that the graduates reflect on how the school has trained them.
The cost of the program is expensive. If you are using Federal Student Loans, the school can only get about half of the cost from the government. The rest of the money is out of pocket, paid monthly.
Once one has finished externship the student is on their own. In this difficult economic atmosphere, MCLA jobs require experience and certification. For new graduates, if you are not hired from the externship site, jobs are difficult to find.
The rate of pay for this field, if one is lucky enough in this economic climate, to find a position is $9-$10 an hour.
To summarize, one is put through a factory like assembly line 4 month set of 4 courses. One is promised the moon before signing on the dotted line. One is ON THEIR OWN in this difficult economic climate after school and externship have been completed. The cost of attending this school is just too much money to throw away if one is not able to seek employment.
If being a medical assistant is what one really wants to do, research other schools, or try nursing.
