If you’re thinking about a career as a dental assistant or medical assistant, you want to find the college and program that is the right fit for you. Part of that decision is choosing between a small college, like MedQuest, and a larger college or university.
While a larger campus may seem like it will offer more options, bigger is not always better. There are many advantages to attending a small college, including:
Small class sizes: At a small college, you will never be seen as a number. Less students in your classes means less competition for attention. At a small college, you’ll have more opportunities to ask questions, participate in discussions, and get individual help when you need it.
Personal relationships: Your teachers and advisors will know you personally, so they can help you make the best decisions for your academic path and provide you with advice specific to your individual needs. This is also a big advantage when it comes time to get a letter of recommendation for a future employer—you won’t receive a generic letter from someone who knows you well.
Sense of community: It isn’t just your teachers you’ll come to know well at a small college. You’ll make connections with other students, staff and everyone involved with your education. In addition, a feeling of belonging helps bolster self-confidence and is a proven factor in determining student success.
A simple system: At a small college you won’t have to jump through hoops, fill out tons of paperwork or stand in long lines when it comes to registration, parking and other procedures. You’ll be working with the same friendly faces that know you, and because of the small college size, they will always have time to help. That leaves you more time to focus on your studies.
In addition to providing all these small college advantages, MedQuest offers outstanding faculty and staff, access to the latest technology, and an affordable program that gives you an edge when it comes time to begin your career.
