IBMC Career Training College in Cheyenne Launches “Teacher Feature” on Social Media

Inspiring Faculty Members at IBMC College Play Large Role in the Success of Students in the Medical, Legal, Business and Massage College Programs

At IBMC, we know that quality of instructor greatly affects students’ educational experience. Because of that, IBMC has made it a top priority to hire faculty members that personify our mission statement: Caring individuals…changing lives.

In this week’s Teacher Feature, we honor Adam Lanning, an Anatomy & Physiology and Massage Therapy instructor at the Cheyenne campus. Students are often quick to name him as one of their favorite instructors and his sense of humor creates an engaging and fun environment!
