Medical/Clinical Assistant. 510801


In this 224-hour course (144 hours of class/lab time and 80 hours of externship) students will learn how to perform administrative and clinical tasks in physician and other health practitioner offices. Medical assistants are trained professionals who work with doctors, nurses, and various administrative staff to help with certain care tasks and coordinate the overall experience. Essentially, a medical assistant is the bridge between patients, doctors and the nurses who care for them. Duties of a medical assistant vary from office to office, and also depend on the size and location of the practice and the practitioner's specialty. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be prepared and eligible to sit for the American Allied Health National Exam to become a Certified Medical Assistant.
