Medix College is dedicated to providing comprehensive career training that enables our graduates to meet the ever-changing demands of the workplace while contributing to the betterment of the community.
The following objectives are essential to the mission of Medix College:


* To offer quality, career focused allied health and technical diploma and degree programs.

* To develop each student's individual and professional growth, including written and interpersonal communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving competencies.

* To minimize economic disadvantages as a barrier to postsecondary education by providing financial aid services and by accepting students without regard to age, sex, religion, race, physical challenges, or economic or social background.

* To attract and retain qualified instructors who are effective in the classroom and familiar with appropriate current medical, and/or technical practices.

* To maintain a dynamic organization that is responsible and responsive to its constituencies.

* To provide students with the services needed to achieve their career goals.

Providing an education that's a great match with each student's interests and natural abilities is our primary commitment. In order to meet that goal, each student will have the opportunity to receive a personalized career planning session with an admission representative. These sessions allow the student to ask questions about the curriculum and school, as well as help enable school administrators to determine whether an applicant is suited for enrollment.

Surveys of the industries which employ our graduates are conducted to determine what changes or modifications should be made in our training to give the best possible preparation for a career. Many programs conclude with a four-week externship which allows the students to practice their skills in an authentic work environment. This enhances their opportunity for employment.

Throughout the twenty plus years of operation, the programs have continued to produce qualified graduates for the health care profession.
