Sahrash Masood graduated from United Career Institute’s Medical Assisting degree program in June 2021. Shortly afterward, she accepted a position with Premier Medical Associates and began her career as a Medical Assistant. She completed her externship with Premier, and it was such a good fit they offered her a position upon graduation. She said, “It’s going to be almost a year, but it doesn’t feel like it because not one day have I regretted going into work.”

Sahrash said she feels that the program prepared her well to enter the field. She uses a lot of her clinical skills and medical knowledge at work daily. “What we learned in the lab, I use every day at my job in the family practice.” United Career Institute strives to give our students a solid foundation through hands-on training and comprehensive clinical courses. In addition, students are required to complete a 160-hour externship where they apply their knowledge and skills in a professional medical setting.

When asked what she misses most about United Career Institute, Sahrash said the friends and instructors she met during her time here.” They were so involved, and it showed they wanted to see you through till the end. Not every place you go will be that involved, and I feel that is very important to motivate you to succeed.” She cherishes the relationships she formed and misses the support she received from the staff and her peers.

In addition to the relationships and support, Sahrash said, “my favorite part about United Career Institute was that I learned so much and evolved a lot as a human being during my time there. The growth wasn’t just education-wise, but as an individual as well. It helped me speak up more.” We are so proud of Sahrash and how much she has grown in the medical field and in her personal life.

Sahrash is doing well for herself after graduating from United Career Institute. She plans to return to our Licensed Practical Nursing program to take her healthcare career to the next level. We are eager to see all the things she will accomplish in the future.
