Is PrepMD or ATI Worth it?

Are these programs worth the high price? I've been trying to break into CRM for a long time, but the recruiters I work with do not seem to have many of these positions come across their desk. I'd hate to drop 20k plus and still not be able to find a job.

Is one of the programs better than the other?

Is there someone who has recently done research on these two programs and chose one over the other? I’m in the process now and would like to know why you chose the program you did. Thanks.

Did you end up choosing a program? I am looking into prep md but do not see any job outlook.

Ive noticed that almost all Account specialists with Biosense Webster, Medtronic and Boston Scientific went to ATI. I only found one that graduated from PREP MD. Also ATI has 100 percent job plcaement , where as Prep MD has 94 percent.

From looking into it further, that’s just from the time period they’re reporting on, which the 2 schools use diff time periods so that’s why ATI’s is higher placement cause it’s a longer period they’re reporting on.

I’m looking at the 2 in terms of ATI having a 100% pass rate, and PrepMD scores their students. I could see pros and cons for both. If I did super well in the program I’d want to be scored so hiring managers saw that. But if I didn’t do well I’d rather go to ATI so hiring managers just saw that I passed. Anyone have any feedback on that? I guess it’s hard to compare since no ones prob attended them both, but how to the 2 schools curriculum compare? Is ATI easier then? Do hiring managers prefer PrepMD since they can see the actual scores of students then?

My son went to PrepMD in 2018 and had a job before graduation earning $90K. Everyone in his class was placed in jobs either before graduation or within a month after graduation. They all had jobs at Medtronic, Abbott, Boston Scientific, Topera, Biosense Webster, and maybe a few other companies. During his clinicals phase of the program my son had many job interviews. It was his impression that PrepMD's training program was highly regarded by all of the hiring managers he met. He has a very positive impression of the program and likes his job very much as a rhythmia mapping specialist.

today was my last day at ATI because I’m leaving for my job that pays $86,000. Our class has 48 students and the program goes to April 12 and already in January 32 people has jobs. In 31 years only 4 people have not been placed

I recently graduated (02/06) from PrepMD. I am still looking for a job (timing and location is everything), but I have no doubt that I will get one within the month. From my class, 10 (of 16) students have already signed an offer and started their careers. If you are serious about entering the industry, I highly recommend the program. The Director of Education, Tom Kenny, is unlike any other. He successfully teaches students from every background possible and provides great advice about the industry (prior to PrepMD, he was the VP of Academic Affairs at St. Jude Medical). I chose PrepMD over ATI because of the connections it has with my school, Georgia Tech.

To the original poster, have you found a job yet?

update please

My niece and her husband both graduated from this school and received jobs immediately upon graduation with salaries of $80,000 each. It's like hitting a gold mine basically for a program that is only 10 months long.

Did they attent ATI or prep md??

Thanks to whoever posted the above article but it would still be good to know what types of jobs graduates are getting and the placement rate. It's a lot of money to shell out and not know how good of a job you are looking at.

All of these programs are a waste of money and target (prey) on people who do not have a chance at getting into the industry. They need people's desperation to pay their bills. Network through people you know and ask for informational interviews or if someone would be willing to let you ride along.

You have no idea what you're talking about at all.

Based on this forum, I get the sense that both programs are of high quality. Do these programs feed to different companies? Like one to Medtronic and Edwards and the other to Boston Scientific? This would at least help figure out what would be the best fit.
