Mayland Community College Medical Assisting students recently held their pinning ceremony.
Mayland’s Medical Assisting curriculum prepares multi-skilled health care professionals who are qualified to perform administrative, clinical, and laboratory procedures.
Course work includes instruction in scheduling appointments, coding and processing insurance accounts, billing, collections, medical transcription, computer operations; assisting with examinations/treatments, performing routine laboratory procedures, electrocardiography, supervised medical administration; and ethical/legal issues associated with patient care.
Graduates of CAAHEP-accredited medical assisting programs, like the one offered at Mayland, may be eligible to sit for the American Association of Medical Assistants’ Certification Examination to become Certified Medical Assistants. Employment opportunities include physicians’ offices, health maintenance organizations, health departments, and hospitals.
Mayland Community College will hold registration for the fall curriculum semester on August 14. For more information visit www.mayland.edu or call 828-766-1234.
