Professional Skills Institute
- Professional Skills Institute is a private college that specializes in Medical training that can be completed within two years or as little as twelve months. Our current program offerings include Associate Degrees in Medical Assisting and Physical Therapist Assisting. In addition, there are diploma programs in Medical Assisting, Medical Insurance Specialist, and Practical Nursing. The college was founded in 1984 by Patricia Finch, a Toledo born registered nurse, who had the desire to teach students above and beyond the required clinical and technical skills. At the inception of the college there were only two students and two programs, and the classes were held in a small office space on Airport Highway. Today, there are nearly 400 students at PSIï¿½s newest location at 5115 Glendale Avenue. The student body at PSI is diverse. From the student just graduating from high school to the adult learner who is looking to make a career change, PSI is definitely an alternative to larger colleges and universities.
- The teacher population of 27 teachers has stayed relatively flat over five years.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
