medical_assistant[1]Response to our health care certificate programs has been so strong that we’ve decided to introduce a fifth program in February — Medical Administrative Assistant.

Medical administrative assistants support physicians and nurses in maintaining a patient’s medical and financial records.

An administrative assistant’s tasks consist of keeping medical records, greeting patients, billing and clerical duties, scheduling appointments, arranging for admission to the hospital and laboratory services, and checking supplies.

This new program joins Phlebotomy Technician, EKG Technician, Pharmacy Technician, and Medical Billing & Coding in our menu of health care programs.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these programs, please attend a free information session at the UT Conference Center in downtown Knoxville.

Sessions are set for Thursday, January 7, 2010, and Tuesday, January 12, 2010 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. each day. E-mail or call (865) 974-0150 to make a reservation.
