From one of our Students:

West Coast College has taught me absolutely everything I needed to know to be successful as a Medical Lab Assistant and in the Health Care Field. My experience at the college was an excellent one, from the instructor to the diagnostic and technical aspects, it always remained knowledgeable and fun. I would highly recommend and have recommended West Coast College to many people already. At West Coast College you learn everything from technical, diagnostic, professionalism, cardiology, terminology and even have time for some interesting questions and experiences along the way.
