Meet Toni: A Graduate of the Dorsey Schools Patient Care Technician Training Program
I love Dorsey — there were hands-on activities every single day. The teachers were very involved and I made a lot of good friends there. The hands-on training in Dorsey was wonderful, we did a lot of blood draws, which we had to practice on a fake arm and we also got to practice on fellow students. It made me feel like I was in the real medical field! When I walk across the stage to get my diploma, all of my hard word and efforts that I put into this program is going to pay off!
