3 About the Profession Medical Assistants work in clinics and other ambulatory care centers and enjoy a great amount of variety in their careers. They are trained to perform many administrative and clinical duties, which vary from office to office depending on the location, size, and specialty of the facility. Medical Assistants are instrumental in helping patients feel at ease in the doctor s office and often explain the physician s instructions; therefore, strong communication skills and a desire to help others are highly beneficial. For more information, refer to the American Association of Medical Assistants website at or the Washington State Society of Medical Assistants website at About the Program The 85-credit Medical Assistant program at Clark College leads to a Certificate of Proficiency; however, students have the option of completing additional requirements to earn a 95-credit Associate in Applied Technology degree as well. This limited-entry program starts once a year in Winter Quarter, and students must complete minimum requirements (see p. 3) to be eligible to start the program. Program and Career Demands As you consider applying to the Clark College Medical Assistant program, it is important that you understand the requirements of the program and the profession. Students in the program, as well as Medical Assistants working in the healthcare field, experience great physical demands, such as reaching and bending, extensive moving or lifting of weights over 25 pounds, and long periods of standing and/or walking They also perform tasks requiring manual dexterity, such as typing, drawing blood, and operating medical equipment. Before You Apply We appreciate your interest in Clark College s Medical Assistant program.

More specific information on funding availability, the application process, and eligibility determination is available on the Clark College website at Notification Regarding Criminal Felony Convictions Anyone with a criminal felony record must be aware of the following: Washington Administrative Code prohibits healthcare facilities from employing or accepting students with a criminal history. Healthcare facilities in Oregon also have this prohibition.

The State of Washington will not award a Certificate as a Healthcare Assistant to anyone with a criminal felony record. (See state law for specific details.) The American Association of Medical Assistants will not allow an individual with a criminal felony record to take the Certified Medical Assistant Examination. (See AAMA rules for specific details.) Applicants to the Medical Assistant program may be asked to submit a criminal background check.

The decision of the BMED Department Head and Unit Dean is final and cannot be appealed. Removal from Program Students removed from the program for cause, such as failure to meet program standards of safety or conduct, or removed from practicum for cause as stated in the Medical Assistant Practicum syllabus, may not apply for reentry into the Medical Assistant program. Important Notes Confidentiality: During your Medical Assistant program experience you will be working with confidential information about fellow students in labs and patients in practicum. There may also be confidential discussions about healthcare facility practices. This information shall be kept confidential and not discussed outside the classroom or clinical site.

If you do not complete courses (or send updated transcripts) for four terms, your status will inactivate. Qualified applicants not selected for program entry can keep their file active for consideration for the next selection cycle for a total of two cycles. In order to remain in the selection pool, candidates must notify the Program Director and Enrollment Services of this request. These applicants will not be given priority and will be evaluated in the same manner as the rest of the applicants.

Evaluation results could result in removal from the program.
