Starting in fall 2018, Lake Land College will begin offering a new hybrid version of the Medical Assistant program. The new version allows students to take all their courses online and only come to campus one night a week for lab.
This will be offered in addition to the traditional two-year associate degree and the one-year certificate program.
“We think this will open up an amazing opportunity for people who can’t be in classes during the day,” Medical Assistant Program Instructor Molly Yeske said. “This will also be perfect for people already employed in the medical field who want to pursue promotions.”
Medical assistants work in medical facilities under the direction of a physician and have both clinical and office responsibilities. Administrative duties may include scheduling appointments and maintaining medical records. Clinical duties could range anywhere from phlebotomy and medication administration to taking and recording vital signs and medical histories to preparing patients for examination.
Medical Assistant is a special admission program that requires students to complete a specific application in addition to Lake Land’s Intent to Enroll.
The application deadline for the fall 2018 semester is May 1, 2018.
