Medical Assisting:

The A.S. program in medical assisting comprises general studies in the humanities, business, and the natural sciences along with preparation for clinical and administrative health care occupations. Medical assistant positions often include such tasks as reception, appointment scheduling, medical coding and transcribing, computer use, taking patient histories, taking and recording vital signs, medication administration, assisting the physician with minor procedures, venipuncture, and giving injections.

The medical assisting program is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep. org) upon the recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB)—Commission on the Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, 1361 Park Street, Clearwater, FL 33756, 727.210.2350. To ensure that the program teaches current and relevant skills, it follows the objectives outlined in the Occupational Analysis of the Certified Medical Assistant.

Any student wishing to take the national Medical Assisting Certification Exam must graduate from an accredited program. MSU’s medical assisting program was the first in West Virginia to be accredited.
