Non-Credit Career Pathway Course

With the Certified Medical Assistant program you will learn the personal traits and professional capabilities required of an entry-level medical assistant. A Medical Assistant is a health professional that performs routine administrative and clinical tasks in a variety of offices and clinics of physicians and nurse practitioners, urgent care centers, hospitals, labs, insurance and billing companies, and government agencies. The Medical Assistant field is one of the most versatile health occupations in today's healthcare environment. Medical Assistants perform administrative tasks such as managing business affairs of the practice, scheduling appointments, medical reception, billing, and acts as a patient advocate and navigator. Medical Assistants also assist the provider in performing clinical skills of patient documentation, procedure preparation, diagnostic testing, collecting specimens, pharmacology management, and basic first aid. With this course you will learn the professional characteristics and knowledge required of a Medical Assistant.
