In addition to our game design degree programs, don’t forget that we also offer concentrations in computer programming, computer networks, computer operations and more! That’s because we recognize just how important the latest information technologies are for many of today’s businesses and would like to prepare students for rewarding careers where they can actively contribute to a business’ success.

Department Spotlight: Medical and Natural Sciences

(718) 261-5800 / (718) 259-5300
In a previous blog post, we focused on the specifics of our medical assistant associate degree program. Today, we’d like to offer you an overview of our entire medical and natural sciences department in order to broaden your knowledge of the opportunities we offer here at Bramson ORT College.

Under our medical and natural sciences department, students can obtain one of four destinations – pharmacy technician associate degree, medical assistant associate degree, medical office administration assistant concentration or professional billing and coding concentration. Regardless of the program pursued, all students will have access to the latest technology in our updated medical and computer labs and will be taught by some of the industry’s most experienced and skilled instructors. Furthermore, since certain job placements require prospects to have deeper qualifications than what are taught in the classroom, we offer review classes for National Certification and City-Wide professional exams so that students can excel in the work setting of their choice.

If you’re interested in a rewarding career in the medical field, we highly recommend applying for one of our three medical programs. For your convenience, required courses are taught at both our Queens and Brooklyn campuses and are open to all students who possess a high school diploma or GED. And the best part is, if you are currently without your GED but are interested in enrolling, we offer students the opportunity to earn their GED while they participate in our programs.

For more information on our medical and natural sciences department or the programs we offer within, please visit us on our website or contact us at (718) 261-5800 today!

Test Taking Tips for Students

Bramson ORT College
69-30 Austin Street, Forest Hills, Queens NY
(718) 261-5800 / (718) 259-5300

Now that we are just about half way through the fall semester, it is officially time to start studying and preparing for midterms; if you haven't already, that is! When students hear the word midterm, they often tense up when they realize how much material they are about to be tested on. Furthermore, regardless of how much they have studied, many students go into their midterms with a stomach full of butterflies as the anticipation of the test alone takes over their calm sense of self - but it doesn't have to!

Here at Bramson ORT College, we understand the stress, pressure and nerves that our students feel both before and during their midterms, which is why we've compiled a list of some of the most effective test taking tips to help during this difficult time; please see below:
  1. Go into your test with a positive attitude. When you enter your classroom with a positive mind set, you are already setting yourself up for success!
  2. Avoid cramming the night before. When you overload yourself with information too close to the test, you're more likely to forget the information you've worked so hard to learn. Instead, only do a brief review of the material prior to the test.
  3. Take a few minutes to go through the test before even looking at the first question to get a feel for how you will have to manage your time. Additionally, if you look at a question and don't know the answer, don't panic! Skip it and move on, then come back to it at the end.
Are you a Bramson ORT College student that has midterms coming up? Are you having trouble with the material you are required to know and understand? Visit the tutoring center for help! At Bramson ORT College, our tutoring center staff can go over any questions you may have and help you create an effective study guide that will lead you towards success on all of your tests.

Transfer to Bramson ORT College Today!

Are you a student that feels like your current college is not meeting the expectations you had for your college career?

However, sometimes making the decision to transfer and going through the process can be difficult and time consuming; but it doesn't have to be! At Bramson ORT College, we make it easy.

In order to transfer to Bramson ORT College, we first ask that you send an official transcript from your previous college to our registrar's office. Please note that this must be done within 30 days of sending us your application. Additionally, we ask for an official course description of the classes you have completed so that we can best determine if previously earned credits can be accepted. That's it! From there, our team takes care of the rest.
