My experience here at the Manhattan Institute has been truly amazing. I have not only gotten to learn the inner workings of anatomy practices, but I get to practice on my fellow classmates every day. I will be the first to admit, I was extremely nervous about practicing Phlebotomy on each other, but the instructors, along with individually assigned instructors, truly take their time teaching us step-by-step processes.
