United Medical and Business Institute
United Medical and Business Institute (UMBI), located in the historic Wagon Works Building, opened its doors in East Point in 2005.
Husband and wife team, Demetrice and Nathaniel Straws Jr., chose Downtown East Point because they felt like it was a great location for a Medical and Business School. Ms. Straws wants the community to know that their institute is where your dreams become your reality. "We make learning fun in a professional and friendly environment", says Straws.
A little known fact about United Medical and Business Institute is that you can be nationally certified in Medical Assisting or Medical Business Administration in less than a year!
UMBI’s educational goal is to provide adequate programs with emphasis on knowledge and skills re-quired for you to obtain employment. They focus on equipping their graduates with the knowledge and skills to become successful in highly rewarding competitive fields. Their faculty offers quality instruction in the classroom, along with years of real-life experiences. Students attend educational trade shows and there is a for-mal graduation ceremony.
Following graduation, the career development and the placement office will assist you in preparing for interviews and pursuing career advancement within your chosen field.
