Practical training for medical assistants

CCI Training Center prepares you for a medical assistant career by providing you with hands-on clinical and clerical experience.

Our Medical Assistant program’s practical classes will teach you how to perform both the medical procedures and administrative duties required in these positions, no matter the workplace. CCI’s small class sizes means you get plenty of practical training and one-on-one support from instructors.

The Medical Assistant program also includes an externship so you can gain first-hand experience interacting directly with patients and medical staff. This usually involves spending several hours a week in a medical facility to put into practise the skills you have learned while studying at CCI Training Center in DFW.

In a simulated clinical environment you will learn how to:

  • Record patients’ medical history, vital statistics, and test results
  • Show patients to exam rooms and prepare them
  • Use blood pressure units and ophthalmoscopes
  • Prepare and administer medication as directed by a doctor
