Expansion in the health services industry and technological advances in medicine have increased the demand for multi-skilled medical assistants that handle both administrative and clinical duties. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, medical assisting is projected to be the fastest growing occupation through 2012.
Students are trained for patient care duties such as preparation of examination rooms, taking vital signs, minor surgical procedure assistance, injections, venipuncture, lab operations, X-Rays and electrocardiograms. Administrative training includes patient records, billing, appointments, ordering supplies and handling insurance claims.
Students receive clinical practice at a healthcare facility in their community. The Keiser University program is also accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
