Breathe NEW LIFE into your career!

Are you looking for a rewarding career where you will feel good at the end of each day?

Then you’re an ideal candidate for Pennsylvania Institute of Technology’s Clinical Medical Assistant Certificate Program.
What is a Clinical Medical Assistant?
Clinical medical assistants act as the “right hand” to physicians and other healthcare professionals. Any time you visit your doctor’s office, you’ll more than likely interact with a clinical medial assistant. These professionals assist in a range of tasks, including taking your medical history and performing routine procedures and tests.

Clinical medical assistants provide support to both healthcare professionals and patients. If you look forward to working as part of a team and helping patients, you will be a great clinical medical assistant.
Clinical Medical Assistants work in the following:
  • Doctor’s offices
  • Multi doctor practices
  • Home healthcare
  • EKG testing facilities
  • Surgical centers
  • Urgent care clinics
  • Medical laboratories
