The Medical Assistant training is for people who want to work with patients in a clinical setting. Program graduates can expect to begin careers as clinical medical assistants and will be doing their externship with our lead employer, Integrated Healthcare Partners. Students will learn a wide array of skills including patient triage, patient education, specimen collection, injections, vital signs, ECGs, social determinants of health, and a wide array of other skills to prepare them for success after graduation.
The Medical Assistant training runs for approximately 16 weeks, 30 hours per week (12 weeks of training and 4 weeks in a clinical externship) and employment assistance is included with the program.
Program participants will complete their externship at Thundermist facilities in West Warwick, Woonsocket, or Wakefield and have preferred hiring opportunities at one of the locations.
