I came across an ad on Facebook and could not get it out of my head. I had to get enrolled. If you want to become a Pharmacy Technician and searching for an institution that offers flexible payment plans, professional and courteous customer service, and qualified, dedicated, passionate, and caring instructors, all in one place, then it got to be IAHJA! I cannot thank them enough for allowing me the opportunity to move one step closer to my ultimate goal.
Do I like the Pharmacy technician program they offer? For sure I do! and guess what, you will like it too. Would I recommend the program to others? I already have and will continue doing so. It’s IAHJA for me. The little and humble institution with big integrity!
After a year of having my daughter and dropping out of university I was determined to make myself better. I got accepted into many schools and something still didn’t feel right to me.
I came across Institute of Allied Health Jamaica, I was quite nervous because I wondered how I would juggle school and a new baby at the time but Institute of Allied Health made it very easy for me. The environment and especially my teacher really boosted my confidence and gave me that drive to just give my all and there I fell in love with my program.
I have so much gratitude for the school because I’ve learnt a lot and feel I can now tackle the world.

This institution has completely changed the arc of my academic life. Being someone whose
School life ended abruptly at age 16 yrs. old, IAHJA was a second chance for me.
From day one! I realize that this institution took learning and teaching
seriously and they expect their students to take responsibility for their own learning.
Listen, I went in an adult and came out transformed into an avid and
successful learned adult, in every aspect of my life.
My instructor was passionate about imparting knowledge and know how to at the highest
level, everything she does displays that.
A thank you to Institute of Allied Health Jamaica doesn’t seem adequate but thank you for
believing in me and to give me the gift of an incredible career path and
for always putting your students first, I will most definitely pay it forward in your name.
My name is Trishauna Campbell, I am a past student of the IAHJA.
I have choose the medical field firstly, because my hands are to save lives and secondly, a better life for my son and I
It was a rough couple of months studying but it eventually paid off and I just want to say a big thank you to my teacher Ms. Parkes, although she said we must not address her as a teacher but Ms. Parkes, you are my forever Teacher!
Thank you for never giving up on me and believing in me, I’m so glad I made you proud.
My advice to upcoming students who might have Ms. Parkes for their teacher, is to please come with your ‘A’ game and humbleness because you have a very loud mouth Teacher to deal with but otherwise from that, you will definitely get your money’s worth.
Wish you all the best.
I am Justine Henry and this is my school journey story.
This journey started because of my daughter who passed at 7weeks old after birth. I promised myself and her that I would make her proud of me in whatever I chose to do…. Studying phlebotomy has taught me a lot about the human body and mainly it help me to understand more about the condition my daughter was diagnosed with.
Listen, let me be honest, the course information can get overwhelming, at one point I wanted to give up, nonetheless I pushed through and reminded myself why I was doing the program.
Thanks to my instructor for passing on her knowledge and being a great inspiration to me.
My time and money was well spent at IAHJA, I was taught well and I retained my course information well. I am glad that I did not give up on this path , I want to thank God, my mom, my daughter and the Institute of Allied Health Jamaica for helping me on this journey of becoming a proud Registered Phlebotomy Technician.
Institute of Allied Health is the best school I’ve ever attended. Their main priority is the success
of their students. As a past student who lives overseas, I still talk about the director, Ms. Parkes.
She is someone you would wish not to go through life without crossing paths with… She is
approachable, selfless, patient and kind, inspirational etc… From the first time we met I realized
Miss Parkes was no ordinary human. She knows how to bring out the best in you, has one
believe in his or her own abilities whilst strengthening your own self-concept. I have started the
nursing program overseas because of the faith she has in me, and her constant encouragements.
The world would do so well with character traits like Miss Parkes.
IAHJA is an institution any progressive persons would want to be a part of.
I am Renay Richards and I am happy to have align myself with this institution.
I’m also grateful for my instructor Ms. L. Parkes, for her ability to
Support her student’s development in any area we might
Fall short in and I am not just talking about Phlebotomy, her teaching expends beyond the program topics, to life lessons that motivates and inspires you to become a greater version of yourself. My experience with IAHJA was an awesome one! I am who I am today because of this humble institution.
Let me just add and be honest, Ms. Parkes teaching style is very unconventional, so if you not ‘down to earth’ and very serious about your school work, you might want to readjust before considering this institution but trust me when I say, you won’t regret attending this school.
As a Phlebotomy Technician pass student of Ms Parkes I can honestly say she is one of my best teachers thus far. Her dedication to making sure each student has his/her tools to be an exceptional Phlebotomist was what has made me the person I am today. She believed in me when no one else did and reminded me that a failure is never an option.
Since finishing my course I was employed at Caledonia Medical Laboratory as a Phlebotomist shortly after my time with her where I made my mark as a professional in my field. Because of her training in making sure each student is well rounded and knowledgeable in the laboratory, I am currently employed at the National Public Health Laboratory and Blood Transfusion Services as a Phlebotomist and a Technical Assistant. Ms Parkes continues to be my mentor and motivator whenever I need her for advice and will power, encouraging me to be the best I can be by seizing the opportunities to make a change and being exceptional.
Thank you for going above and beyond your duties as an instructor.
I am Dania Ivey, a past student. The first day I started my program, it was clear that this instructor (Ms Parkes) didn’t come to play games. Her teaching style was perfect for me. Obviously, she wasn’t the conventional type of instructor. My experience was wonderful, I always recommend persons to this institution. Listen, I respect, admire and love this lady she goes above and beyond for her students, she challenges us to be the best, the only thing that was left for her to do, was to open our brain and force the information in.
Today I am a certified phlebotomist and a Laboratory Technical Assistant employed to the Ministry of Health. If it wasn’t for the knowledge instilled, my current journey wouldn’t have been possible. I am eternally grateful.
