Yulieser Oris and  Julio Proenza, both professionals who immigrated to the United States from Cuba, are finding new professional satisfaction through the Anesthesia Technology program at City College, Miami. According to Yulieser Oris, a December 2017 graduate, “The Anesthesia Technology program has changed my life in a positive way; even though, I am a doctor with knowledge and skills as anesthesiologist, this program trains you to be part of a patient care team. With the completion of this program, I am ready to demonstrate professionalism and adherence to ethical and legal standards of the anesthesia technology profession, as well as resolve issues in the anesthesia environment and exhibit competency in the role of the anesthesia technologist in various healthcare settings.” Mr. Oris is working as an Anesthesia Technician at  Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami.

Julio Proenza, who is anticipating graduation in March 2018 from the Anesthesia Technology program, practiced as a lawyer in Cuba. He says that “The AT program offered by City College has allowed me to train in a very competitive profession with high levels of scientific knowledge. Thanks to this program I am a better prepared professional”.
