MEDICAL ASSISTANT CLASSES
The Medical Assistant (CMA) works alongside the provider, mainly in medical offices and clinics. Many medical assistants are cross-trained to perform administrative and clinical duties. This 12-week course will introduce the student to medical terminology, abbreviations, pharmaceutical drugs, using computer applications, greeting patients, answering telephones, and scheduling appointments.
The student will also learn entry-level basics of insurance/billing, medications, injections, vaccinations, Coding, Lab draw skills and 12-Lead EKG. All of this knowledge will prepare the student for their 2-week (40 hours) clinical intern training at a Physicians – office or an outpatient clinic. The student does not automatically go on an intern opportunity, they must show professionalism, maturity, and safety in the classroom setting determined by the instructor.
Upon successful completion, of course, you are eligible to take the National Certification Exam through NCCT for Medical Assistant, Phlebotomy and EKG.
