Coming to Platt was important to me because it has helped me attain the necessary skills and experience I needed to be more marketable in the medical field.

What I liked best about attending Platt was the small class sizes.  The instructors are able to give each student the attention needed to succeed.  Every instructor I had at Platt was helpful and very understanding about the demands put on students in accelerated classes.  I enjoyed attending Platt.
