The introduction of students to the overall operation of the physician’s office is the basic objective of this diploma program. Students are trained to assist the physician in the examination room, perform routine laboratory procedures, and handle financial records, correspondence, insurance forms, and other administrative functions.

Upon completion of this program students should be able to:
Demonstrate the ability to perform clinical assisting and laboratory procedures.
Demonstrate the ability to accurately create and enter data into different healthcare documents.
Apply legal concepts to the medical practice.
Communicate professionally with patients, coworkers, and providers.
