Due before registration: Prerequisites: Candidates must obtain a reading score of 11 on the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) or the Core Academic Skills Assessment (CASA). High school diploma or high school equivalency diploma/HSED. A health assessment/physical examination, Basic 5 Panel drug screening, Hepatitis B, T-dap, MMR, Varicella, and TB test. The physical exam, drug screening, and all proof of immunizations/vaccinations must be performed no sooner than two months before the first date of the class. Clinical sites may require any of these health prerequisites to be performed again before your internship.

Due on the first day of class: A criminal background check must be completed and will be the financial responsibility of the student. Students will be presented with more information and will initiate their background check on orientation/first day of class. Payment may be made with a credit card at that time. Students may choose to mail in a money order; however, the background check will only begin once payment is received. The report must be received within 30 days of the first day of class. Students failing to provide a clear criminal background check may not be eligible for the program’s clinical/internship portion.

Medical administrative assistants play a pivotal role in ensuring a positive, responsive, and efficient medical practice. In this program, students will learn how to provide outstanding customer service, such as professionally greeting and checking in and out patients, scheduling appointments, and obtaining referrals. Instruction will also include proper communications in a medical setting, learning patient chart organization and filing processes, and using various computer software applications to include billing and coding. Medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, HIPAA, and ethics knowledge will make for a well-rounded employee in a medical administrative assistant’s role.

Students completing all classroom and internship requirements will be eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association certification examination. The cost of the exam is included in the program.
