Student Success Story:
Meet Bryan Wong

“Signing up for the medical sciences program gave me hope towards a better future and showed me that there was a field in which I was talented. I graduated from the EMT program in 2018 and am currently working at Western Ambulance, am a skills instructor for the EMT program at Denver Health EMS Education Department. In addition to loving the work I do, I am enrolled at Metropolitan State studying Fire and Emergency Response Administration and plan on attending paramedic school this summer.”
