The Clinical Medical Assistant training program offered in conjunction with Boston Reed College will prepare students to assist a physician, provide care to patients in a doctor’s office or clinic and sit for a national medical assistant certification exam.
Over the course of 5 months, students will gain exposure to job responsibilities that include assisting physicians with exams and minor surgery, taking patient vital signs, caring for patients, performing lab tests, administering medications, electrocardiography and much more.
“Pfeiffer’s partnership with Boston Reed provides an exceptional opportunity to bring a streamlined program that allows students to become certified and start working as soon as possible,” said Paulita Brooker, dean, continuing ed and adult studies. “This is one example of how the Center for Professional Advancement is strengthening the workforce in Charlotte.”
