Mission

The educational goals also include the Medical Assisting Program educating students enabling them to graduate as professional practitioners proficient in all entry-level competencies. The curriculum is designed to instruct and assess students in the achievement of cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain learning objectives as established by the Medical Assisting Evaluation Review Board (MAERB) in order to meet the educational goals.                                                       

The educational goals also include the Medical Assisting Program assessing the needs of the local community through the local advisory board and other various avenues and providing an educational program for Medical Assistants to meet their needs and respond to changes giving graduates the best possible opportunity for local employment.                                                                    

Specifically, the minimum expectation is to “prepare competent entry-level medical assistants in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and effective (behavior) learning domains.”                                                 

  • Psychomotor skills are to be demonstrated and assessed through instructor demonstration, open lab time, practice and “check-offs. Each psychomotor skill must be performed competently at entry level. Graduates must be able to perform all skills at entry level.                          
  • Affective skills are to be demonstrated and assessed through presentations, written, verbal or non-verbal means at entry level. Graduates must demonstrate all effective skills at entry level.              
  • Cognitive knowledge is demonstrated and assessed by quizzes, assignments, projects, games, internet research, papers and written exams utilizing the grading scale established by the Medical Assisting program. Cognitive knowledge must be applied to practice and is assessed by written means within the program and by taking the RMA examination upon completion of the program.
