What you'll learn

The Medical Institute of Kentucky Clinical Medical Assistant program is a course that runs for 22 weeks. Students will engage in a stimulating range of learning activities that include anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, clinical and lab procedures, pharmaceutical principles, HIPAA, medication administration, first aid, and medical law and ethics. Students will also learn cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, safety and infection control, venipuncture equipment and procedure, dermal puncture equipment and procedure, venipuncture complications, and other special collections. As well, medical administrative duties such as mail, supplies, telephone technique, scheduling appointments, an overview of health insurance, medical coding, medical billing, and accounting are addressed. Career Development is also obtained throughout the program.

The Healthcare employee with Clinical Medical Assistant training will complete clinical, routine clerical, and organizational tasks in the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners. Their duties vary with the location, specialty, and size of the practice. Clinical Medical Assistants typically do the following: record patient history and measure vital signs, help the physician with patient examinations, give patient injections as directed by the physician, prepare blood for laboratory tests, organize files, draft messages, schedule appointments, and key electronic health records.  Basic knowledge of insurance, billing practices, electronic health records, and hospital or laboratory procedures is preferred. The nation is entering a new era of health care where providers can use electronic health records to improve patients’ health and the way health care is delivered in this country.

According to the Department of Labor, as the number of practices increases, the need for assistants will also increase, ultimately resulting in a projected 18 percent job growth from 2020 to 2030. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase the demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing physicians to see more patients. 

The Clinical Medical Assistant student will complete instructional and simulation laboratory procedures for a period of up to 22 weeks. Successful completion of all courses is required to receive a program certificate of completion.
