The medical assistants’ curriculum offers students an introduction to the allied health fields. Students will explore a number of health related disciplines and learn associated entry level skills. Students will learn to assist in the performance of diagnostic procedures and physical examinations. Students will also learn to assist with patient education and the business of medical practices.
Varied instructional strategies are used to learn medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, health maintenance and disease prevention. Successful completion will result in CPR certification. Students will experience classroom instruction and practical hands-on experience in an actual medical facility if they choose the 3 hour version of the class, which requires the students to provide their own transportation.
All clinical students must have a physical, 2 step TB test, and a criminal background check to participate in the three-hour class.
