Academic Experience at San Joaquin Valley College - Rancho Cucamonga: I believe that it is the best out there. Here at SJVC it is a 14 month process to getting you Degree! 14 Months can you believe that?! I have had an amazing experience here. There was a time that I didnt know if this was for me or not but sticking it through studying hard has really paid off! What i love about this school is that everything is hands-on. So we will have lecture then we will be taught how to do it, then practice on one another. At first I was scared, but everyone was new to it so we learned together. The instructors are very passionate of what they do.I learned how to do injections: Intradermal, Subcutaneous, Intramuscular, Z-tracks. We learned Phlebotomy which is how to draw blood, glucose testing, hemoglobin, hematocrit etc. With these testing comes making sure that the dosage of mediction is correct and the proper technique of administration is done right. They talk about real life situations or how it is in the office so that when we go out we will know. If there was a time that you didnt understand the concept, they are always open to help you or to tutor you. I never was good at math in highschool, coming to SJVC the teachers made me enjoy the class and learning everyday to were i got my first grade A in the class. It felt so amazing. The homework that is given is based on the concept that we went over that day, it all ties in together and is helpful for when it comes to quiz time! Something that I love is that we have career advisors on campus to help us when it comes time for externship. Extern is 180 hours in the medical office of your choice or they help you find a place. This is to put what you learned from the courses into the real life. Whatever the doctor allows you to do you can do. It is manatory for the Clinical Medical Assitant Program.

Academic Experience at San Joaquin Valley College - Rancho Cucamonga: Its amazing to know that you wont have to go to the first day of class early to see if you get a seat in class. Here at SJVC what I thought was interesting is that once you enroll you have a set schedule that will follow you through the time that you are here! While im in class my friends cant even get the class they need for there major. I thought it was cool to know that I wont have to worry about that. Our school get involved with the community for events or for health fairs, or for business club activities. Its honestly a great experince to be involved with campus activites

Academic Experience at San Joaquin Valley College - Visalia: The professors are great the make sure you understand everything before moving onto another subject and they help you understand fully if you didn't understand something before. The curriculum is awesome. The class registration process was easy was not difficult or time consuming at all it was quick. The workload is good they do not over load you with stuff. My special study opinion would be that it's really good. They do everything step by step and show you how to do things so you know how to do it again if needed. The programs are beyond amazing! Not only do they make sure you know and understand everything but the hands on training is a big plus.
