The Medical Assisting program prepares students to be allied health professionals. Students will learn to perform routine clinical and administrative tasks that keep medical facilities running smoothly. Students will also learn interpersonal skills to work with medical personnel and patients. Students develop skills to put patients at ease, explain physician’s instructions, respect the confidential nature of medical information, and perform all duties with a high level of professionalism. Students will participate in clinics throughout the two years, focusing on body systems, patient screenings, and clinical assisting skills. Students will also participate in internships with medical facilities throughout their second year in the program.
