Medical Assistant Training

33- Week, 720-Clock Hour Program

Course Objectives

The objective of this training program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that are required to become a professional clinical medical assistant. The program curriculum and resources are aligned with current community and industry demands, with an emphasis on applying advanced patient care theory and hands-on training to real-world patient situations. Students will work alongside physicians and licensed nursing staff to explore practical applications of medical assistant competencies. The clinical and administrative technical skills acquired in this program will allow students to successfully pass the NHA certification exam, and subsequently, obtain gainful employment as an entry-level clinical medical assistant. Upon successful completion, students will be able to:

  • Assist during patient intake, physical examinations, and patient screening procedures
  • Obtain and record patient vital signs and medical histories
  • Properly collect and manage laboratory blood and body fluid specimens
  • Assess patient cardiac rhythms and rates through 12-lead ECG interpretation and telemetry monitoring
  • Administer vaccinations, injections, and medications under the direction of ordering providers
  • Create and maintain patient health records while coordinating billing and coding practices
  • Maintain patient privacy and legal boundaries in accordance with facility and federal regulations
