“I am currently attending Palladium Technical Academy for its medical assisting program, have been for about 5 months. I am almost done with this program and so happy I decided to dedicate myself to a career in the medical field. School is affordable and everyone is really friendly here. My instructor is very helping and understanding. I was brought in by Ms. Edythe. She’s very welcoming and keeps in touch with you during your first month to make sure everything is running smoothly. I truly recommend attending or checking out the school for its medical assisting and other programs as well.”
