New Medical Program At Perry Tech
Perry Technical Institute is expanding its Medical Technology Department by adding a Medical Assistant Program.
The new program will prepare students for careers as medical assistants in doctor’s offices, clinics and other health-care facilities.
The school says as practices expand, they will hire more medical assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing physicians to see more patients.
Perry’s 18-month program teaches both the office skills and the clinical and patient care skills needed to work as a medical assistant in a variety of settings. The curriculum covers computer applications, medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, clinical procedures and electronic health records.
The new program is scheduled to begin in January of 2013.
