Current programs offered include the following:
Medical Assistant (MA) Medical Assistants play an important role in the health care team by providing direct patient care as well as performing both administrative and clinical procedures. They promote health awareness by educating their patients, the patient’s family, and their community. Medical Assistants work under the supervision of the physician, physician-assigned supervisor, or provider-employer. They provide a variety of services to the patient in clinics, physicians’ offices, and other health care settings. With experience, Medical Assistants can be promoted to a supervisory position such as Clinical Supervisor or Office Manager. Health Professionals Institute will provide, prepare, and assist its students to become exemplary Medical Assistants in order to supply qualified graduates for the medical community workforce.Program graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) certification exam
Medication Assistant Endorsement Program for CNA's only! Health Professionals Institute is proud to announce that we are the first school in Washington State to be approved to teach classes for the new Medication Assistant- certification (MA-C). This certification allows specially trained CNAs to pass some routine medications under the supervision of an RN. This certification will free up the floor nurse allowing the nurses more time to assess clients, perform treatments, and document care. Having an MC-A doing routine chores will also cut costs, easing budget stresses. We are excited to be able to offer this program to CNAs and skilled nursing facilities. More than thirty states already have MA-C programs in place and we are thrilled to be able to offer this program here in Washington.
