As a Detroit born and raised company, we are regularly humbled by the amazing work our clients do right here in our community. This month we wanted to pause to recognize the ongoing contributions our friends at Carnegie Institute have made to training a highly skilled, local health support workforce. We have gotten to know them closely over our 12+ years providing IT support services, including our MSP superpowers, and are excited to spread the word that their summer term begins shortly!

What is the Carnegie Institute?

Carnegie Institute was founded in 1947, Detroit, Michigan, in response to the critical need for specialized postsecondary education. Now in their 72nd year, their programs and state of the art training facility in Troy have evolved to meet the needs of professionals and the marketplace for allied health services. “To be recognized as a leader in health and training services is an accomplishment in and of itself, but what’s truly impressive is just how long Carnegie Institute has maintained that classification. It demonstrates a true commitment to serving students and understanding the industry on the other end of graduation,” says Matt Morin, Visionary and CEO of Macro Connect. The breadth of their training programs includes learning paths for specialties in careers like: medical assistant, medical business specialist, cardiology technician, massage therapy, and more. See their programs at a glance page for a more detailed coursebook (click here).

The school is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). In July, 2014, ACCSC awarded Carnegie Institute the School of Excellence Award, the highest award granted by the Commission. This is in addition to an impressive array of individual program accreditations and professional credentials that make students highly sought after upon graduation.

Carnegie Institute’s Proud History

Given it’s sustained history of excellence, the Carnegie Institute has received a variety of accolades and firsts over the years, including:

  • Graduating students at Carnegie have externship privileges at more than 300 medical facilities, and rotation privileges at 55 major hospitals in our service areas.
  • First school in the State of Michigan to receive CAAHEP Program Accreditation for its Cardiovascular Technologist Program, Invasive Cardiovascular Technologist Program, Medical Assistant Program, Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist Program, and Vascular Technologist Program on the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation for Education.
  • In 2009 and 2014, the ACCSC Awarded the Carnegie Institute the School of Excellence Award

Still, President of the school Rob McEachern says, “Nothing makes our experienced faculty or myself more proud than seeing what our students have to say about the programs and how it has launched or enriched their careers.”  Testimonials include Alexis, a graduate from the Massage Therapist program who says: “I really enjoyed the program. It changed my life. I couldn’t be happier in the field that I’m in right now.” And Brittany, a graduate from the Invasive Cardiovascular Technologist program who shared that: “The lectures and hands-on classroom experiences prepared me well for the clinical setting.”
