Medical Assistant

Medical assistants serve an important role on the medical team by performing a wide variety of clinical and clerical duties. The Medical Assistant program is designed to orient students to the duties of a physician’s office employee, from general office procedures to the technical phases of exam room assisting, and elementary medical laboratory techniques. Occupational experience is provided through placement in a local office/clinic during the last four weeks of the final semester, and graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification examination immediately after graduation.

Accreditation Status

The Southwest Wisconsin Technical College Medical Assisting Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Curriculum Review Board of the Association of Medical Assistants Endowment (AAMAE).
