Meet Grisel T. Alcantar, a 2020 graduate of the Medical Assistant program. Grisel is employed at Advocate Medical Group OBGYN as a Medical Assistant. Grisel is also a winner of the $2k Performance Scholarship in 2021 given out to an esteemed graduate who excels in and out of the classroom.
Grisel chose First Institute because, “I was on maternity leave when I realized I wanted to change my career path and after doing my research and having a couple of friends who have successfully completed the program with great work opportunities I decided this was the best choice for me! I’ve heard wonderful things about the program at First Institute and how they work with students to accomplish their goals. This inspired me to join First Institute.”
Grisel recommends First Institute because “I can’t stress enough how great of an experience I’ve had at FI. My instructors were wonderful and really supported me every step of the way. FI gives students the opportunities to really succeed. I thankfully was able to win a performance scholarship and found my dream job right at my externship! As a busy mom of 2 this program gave me everything I needed to be where I am today and enough to proceed with my education.”
