After working 20 years in the medical field taking care of patients, Mr. Prince wanted to put his knowledge to use and pass it on to students. He began working at Great Lakes in May 2012 as an evening Medical Assistant instructor. Now, Mr. Prince can be found teaching anatomy, physiology, and pathology to students in just about any program in the school, but he spends most of his time working with the evening Medical Assistant students.
After high school, Mr. Prince enlisted in the Army as a medic and served for 20 years, traveling to Germany, South Korea, Kuwait and Iraq as well as many states in the U.S. The experiences he had in the military enhanced his medical knowledge in a variety of ways.
When asked what he likes most about the students at Great Lakes, Mr. Prince says "the diversity of students from all walks of life is what I find most enjoyable." If there is one solid piece of advice Mike can give students looking to enter the medical field it is this: "Have the willingness to learn new things and have an open mind."
