Meet Concepcion: A Graduate of the Dorsey Schools Patient Care Tech Program
The best part about studying at Dorsey was that you really felt like you were a team with all the staff teachers, administrators, and whoever was behind the scenes helping you. It was really a team effort and everybody put in. For anybody at home who is thinking about coming to Dorsey, I would say absolutely do it, it is worth it to build your career and your skills and to just know that after you leave Dorsey you have a good foundation. It’s worth every second of your time.
