In this the Clinical Medical Assistant program students will gain a foundational knowledge in anatomy and physiology and basic pathophysiology of the body systems, have a foundational understanding in medical terminology, demonstrate universal precautions, and record a patient’s medical history accurately. Students will learn to describe the role of a Medical Assistant in a general physical exam and list the steps necessary to prepare a patient for examination, describe the various diagnostic tests performed in the basic specialties and the patient’s role in each, and list the Medical Assistant’s role and tasks in a physician’s office laboratory and summarize the various guidelines for laboratory safety.
According to the Department of Labor, as the number of practices increases, the need for assistants will also increase, ultimately resulting in a projected 29 percent job growth from 2060 to 2026. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.
The Clinical Medical Assistant student will complete instructional and laboratory procedures for a period of up to 22 weeks. Successful completion of all courses is required to receive a program certificate of completion.
