Medical Assistant

HCC's medical assistant certificate program prepares students to work in clinics, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, insurance companies or physician's offices. The program combines clinical as well as clerical courses that will enable students to assist in varied health care agencies. The program teaches students to perform health office phlebotomy and EKGs, check vital signs, administer injections, assist physicians with minor surgery and routine patient exams, as well as perform administrative duties. A daytime clinical externship is mandatory. The American Medical Technologists organization will certify students upon successful completion of the certification exam.
