Hello my name is Eliza and I am a second-year respiratory therapy student.

Why did you choose Michener?

I chose Michener because I admire Michener’s combination of practical, simulation-based learning with theoretical knowledge. Michener offers a quality education and will prepare me with the technical skills, scientific knowledge and best practice professionalism required for a career in health care. The small class sizes and sense of community really solidified my decision to join the Michener family. I enjoy being able to apply the knowledge I gain in the classroom in my labs, as these are the skills I will need in the workforce.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a future student?

My advice is to take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to you without overwhelming or burdening yourself. Make the most of your time here at Michener by continuing to learn, and have fun doing it!

Fred

Fred

Hello my name is Fred and I am a second-year medical laboratory science student.

Why did you choose Michener?

After completing my M.Sc. in neuroscience at Dalhousie University, I worked for the Nova Scotia Health Authority in Halifax. There, I became interested in pursuing a health care career in the laboratory environment. The people I worked with were primarily medical laboratory technologists and they highly recommended I pursue my training at Michener. Michener is regarded as one of the top institutions for training health care professionals in Canada. Here at Michener, I have really felt a sense of community among students and faculty. Having smaller class sizes compared to undergraduate university programs, I have really come to know my peers well both academically and socially. The faculty are also very knowledgeable and engaged with the students.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a future student?

Get involved! Put yourself out there. Not only will you gain invaluable experiences related to your profession, but you will also get a head start in connecting with people who will very likely be fellow colleagues or future employers!

Rasa

Hello! My name is Rasa and I am a second-year respiratory therapy student.

Why did you choose Michener?

I chose to come to Michener because of its excellent standing within the health care field. Since starting here though, I’ve learned that the school is more than simply an educational institution. It is an amazing place: the small community; the friendly faces; and the wealth of knowledge found here truly reflect its reputation.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a future student?

If there were only one thing I would suggest to an incoming student, it would be to fully immerse yourself in the Michener experience. The combination of coursework, extracurricular activities, friends and faculty has made my time here at Michener truly special.
