Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
With the ever-increasing need for medical services nationwide, Vancouver Career College recently announced the launch of a new program where students can earn a Medical Office Assistant – Advanced Practice diploma. The College is currently accepting applications for the new program at its Vancouver, Surrey, Coquitlam and Kelowna campuses, which aims to give students broader, more extensive training in the medical assistance field.
For medical office assistants, job duties can range from clerical work to billing to initial medical assistance when patients arrive. Vancouver Career College already offers training for medical office assistants through a thirty-three-week program, and, because of the expansive opportunities in the field, has added the Advanced Practice program to help give graduates even more job opportunities with increased responsibility.
The Medical Office Assistant – Advanced Practice program, which lasts 49 weeks, helps graduates develop confident knowledge of clinical procedures, medical language, and patient management. This training will prove invaluable for positions as clinic assistants, medical transcriptionists, and medical office assistants. The program also includes on-the-job training through practicum placements and certificates in first aid and CPR.
Vancouver Career College is now accepting applications for the Medical Office Assistant – Advanced Placement program at its Vancouver, Surrey, Coquitlam and Kelowna campuses.
