Amanda and her son Elijah, successful participants in our program, joyfully celebrated her graduation from Hamilton Tech College. Amanda completed the requirements for her Medical Assisting Diploma last weekend, on February 23.
Amanda earned an award as well for Excellent Attendance.
The Medical Assistant is trained to work with and under the direction of a physician in patient care and in administrative aspects of the physician’s office or other medical settings. Amanda’s training taught her clinical techniques including examining room procedures, obtaining vital signs and medical histories, performing routine laboratory procedures, sterilizing and maintaining equipment, and the proper techniques for administering medications.
With a degree in hand, Amanda is equipped with skills that can earn her a position in the medical field. She thereby has completed an important accomplishment which will advance her on the path to independent living.
