First Institute proudly presents, Samantha Calanca, a 2021 graduate of our Medical Assisting program. She is currently employed at Advocate Children’s Medical Group.

Samantha chose First Institute “because the school stood out for her and was very helpful from the moment she clicked on the link to look us up.” Samantha also stated that “First institute taught me everything I needed to know for the work field, they didn’t miss a single step. They made sure to properly explain and give examples of everything we were going to need in our field of work. The teachers took their times in making sure everyone understood and had the hang of what was going on. We truly never moved on until we had it down, it was so wonderful.”

Samantha recommends First Institute because “Everyone was so welcoming and makes you feel part of the first institute family from the beginning. They are so patient and willing to help you in any way they can, at any time. First Institute isn’t just a school; it’s like being a part of a very supportive community.”

Samantha’s best advice for future students is “You can do whatever you put your mind too. Do not self-doubt, because having confidence in myself what got me where I am at today in my career.”
