Do you have great communication skills and like working with people? Do you enjoy hands-on experiences, meeting new challenges, and making a difference in the lives of others? If so, medical assisting is a great career choice for you. The Medical Assisting program prepares students to become an integral part of today’s healthcare system. Highly skilled instructors provide hands-on, one-on-on instruction to students as they take vital signs, complete patient histories, administer injections, perform EKGs, learn phlebotomy skills, and assist with routine and specialty examinations as well as minor surgical procedures. Students also become proficient in administrative skills including, scheduling, insurance, coding, basic accounting, medical office banking, and telephone techniques. This program supports the Bridgerland Technical College mission to deliver competency-based, employer-guided career and hands-on technical education to the Bear River Region.
Accreditation: The Utah State Office of Education provides the opportunity for two endorsements: Administrative Medical Assistant and Clinical Medical Assistant. Each endorsement requires the passing of two benchmark tests given by the Bridgerland Technical College Assessment Center. After successful completion of the certificate, students are eligible to sit for the AAMA Certification Exam, which is a national exam to qualify those who pass to work in any state with the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) credential.
Medical Assisting is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB). The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs can be contacted at (727) 210-2350 or at 25400 US Highway 19 North Suite 158, Clearwater, FL 33763.
