Peninsula College PC touts medical assistant program

Peninsula College’s Medical Assisting Program offers students the opportunity to gain professional skills in an in-demand field, that they can apply both regionally and nationally, college officials noted last week.

Applications are being accepted now for a fall start.

Every newly enrolled full-time professional/technical (vocational) student attending PC in 2021-2022 will receive a guaranteed $1,000 award through the Peninsula College Foundation.

Designed to provide instruction and training that can lead to family-wage, benefited jobs, Peninsula College’s Medical Assisting Program partners with the North Olympic Healthcare Network, Olympic Medical Center, Forks Hospital, Jefferson Healthcare, Jamestown Family Health Clinic and other organizations.

Graduates are required to pass a national credentialing exam to obtain Department of Health-issued Medical Assistant-Certified credentials.
