Clinical Medical Assistant (South Gate Campus)
A Clinical Medical Assistant is a medical support professional that performs a variety of tasks to assist physicians in providing patient care, while ensuring that clinics and hospitals run smoothly and efficiently. These professionals acquire the direct patient contact skills and technical knowledge required to work in the back office or a medical clinic or related healthcare facility. Course content includes medical, surgical asepsis, assisting with physical examinations, and minor office surgery, and electrocardiography, administration of medicine, laboratory skills, assisting with diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and specialized medical practice. Some clinical medical assistants working in a smaller practice may be required to perform administrative tasks, while others working in larger medical facilities focus mainly on providing support services directly related to patient care. An externship with local medical facilities will provide students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, reinforcing classroom content into real world applications.
