Medical Assistants aid the physician and other medical personnel as they examine and treat patients. Medical Assistants perform office administrative tasks that keep a medical office or clinic running smoothly. Graduates are prepared to work in physicians' offices, clinics, nursing homes, and health care centers as a medical secretary, medical assistant, medical receptionist, or medical office manager. The program provides clinical instruction, class lectures, and pratical experience through an externship in a medical facility. Clinical instruction teaches students to prepare patients for examinations, give injections, conduct electrocardiograms, and process routine laboratory tasks. Instruction also covers office duties such as completing insurance forms, scheduling appointments, billing, bookkeeping, and medical collections.
