Medical Assisting

Program Description:

The primary goal of the Medical Assisting program is to prepare competent entry-level Medical Assistants in the knowledge (cognitive), skills (psychomotor), and professional behavior (affective) learning domains. Students with different learning styles will obtain knowledge (cognitive domain) by using lecture, visual aids, assessments and externships to ensure mastery of core content. Students will learn professional behavior (affective domain), through the use of scenarios to demonstrate communication and critical thinking skills which will prepare them for situations they will experience in the workplace. Additionally, students will learn and practice “hands on” (psychomotor domain) skills in the laboratory setting before attending externship to verify competency as an “entry level medical assistant.”
