Mandl School, The College of Allied Health in New York City offers training in the Dental Assistant, Health and Human Services, Health Care Administration, Medical Assisting, Respiratory Therapy and Surgical Technologist fields in New York State. Currently, the state requires credentials – such as a certification or licensure – to secure employment in these occupations excluding Health Care Administration and Medical Assisting. Although a credential is not required by the state for all programs, companies may make it a condition of employment.
Mandl’s academic degree programs are professionally oriented, offering intensive highly structured skills training in the health field. The degree and certificate programs require an externship, which give the students an opportunity to integrate classroom learning with real-world experience and to further develop their skills in preparation for successful employment. Mandl’s typical class size varies from 15-30 students per instructor depending on program and subject and ensures a maximum of student-faculty contact, which is directly responsible for the college’s high success rate.
