Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back and writing for you all.
Today, I wanted to discuss the Clinical Medical Assistant Program that I had the pleasure to join and learn how to become a medical assistant. For those who don’t know, Montgomery College provides a program called the Workforce Development and Continuing Education. WDCE offers a plethora amount of noncredit career and job training courses. It would be a great opportunity for students to reenter the workforce or improve their technical skills. This could help build up your resume and gain hands on experience.
Funny little story, I initially was looking for a way to become a phlebotomist before becoming a medical assistant but had no idea who to ask. Out of everyone, I chose to speak with my English 101 professor, and she was able to steer me to the direction of the health science department where I learned about the medical assistant profession and became curious.
Clinical Medical Assistants would have to be able to prepare patients for examinations and treatments, routine laboratory procedures, technical aspects of phlebotomy and more. This program allows a great chance to go on an externship (50 hours) to get real hands-on experience at a doctor’s office and book work needs to be completed.
The GEER Scholarship is a way to cover funds for Maryland residents who became impacted by the pandemic. Please check periodically when the scholarship opens for sometimes the scholarship may temporarily close. Contact GEER@montgomerycollege.edu for more information.
The Sequence Scholarship is also a great option designed to financial assistance to students enrolled in approved non-credit certificate programs. This includes the Medical Assistant program plus other medical related certifications. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Workforce Development and Continuing Education offers much more than just healthcare related certificates. Just to name a few, there are business, information technology, public safety, technical, education, and even transportation.
Please feel free to explore this list thoroughly and maybe you might find something that spark your interest. Talk to you all next week!
