What Our Medical Assistant Education Partners Think
We were down to just a few medical assistants. [We had] to stabilize turnover. [The program] also provided an opportunity [for employees] to do something they wouldn’t do otherwise. We saw their passion and interest in patient care. Some saw it as a great opportunity to move into patient care… With the medical assistant program, we know it is something that helps the organization and the lives of people who work here.
