These three programs prepare college students for entry-level positions in physician’s offices and other medical facilities. These programs help develop the skills necessary to excel in the healthcare industry.

During the course of training, medical assistant students will learn analytical skills and become more detail oriented to take precise vital signs and record patient information. The student will learn interpersonal skills to be better at discussing patient information with colleagues and help patients with education to live a healthier lifestyle. The medical assistant student will learn basic clinical instrument skills, so they can take patient’s vital signs. These are only a few of the skills a student will learn attending Mildred Elley’s Medical Assistant program.
