About the Class
Do you want a medical career with endless opportunities? The Medical Assisting course is a starting point to begin a career in the medical field. Learn the language of doctors, nurses, and health care professionals. This course involves a curriculum of medical terminology, administrative focus, basic clinical skills, and a second semester internship! Successful completion of a high school health class and biology class are required prior to attending this program.
Learn to take blood pressure, temperature, pulse, respiration, height, weight; perform vision screening, surgical scrub, CPR, First-Aid, medical instruments and office skills. Students in this course will complete an internship during second semester, working in a hospital or clinic setting. Therefore a grade of 80% or better is required by completion of first semester to continue the course. Successful students can also earn up to 11 free college credits through the EvCC Tech Prep program, by completing this course with a grade of B or better.
All health class students need to declare proof of insurance for internships:
Meet the instructor
My name is Sheri Phillips and I have over 32 years experience in the Healthcare field, mostly as a Medical Assistant . I graduated from Edmonds Community College as a Certified Medical Assistant in 1978. Over the years I was able to learn much more than just Medical Assisting, such as X-ray Tech, Billing Specialist, and Cast Technician before I spent the 10 years before I began teaching, as a Medical Office Manager.
I have been teaching the Medical Assisting class here at Sno-Isle TECH since 2010. If you are interested in a career in the medical field, this is the place to start! Please watch the video of students practicing skills, working and training to advance into health care services.
