Welcome Fellow Allied Health Professionals:
Thank you for your interest in the Clinical & Administrative Medical Assistant (CAMA) and
Medical Billing & Coding program (MBC) at Swedish Institute. We are excited that you have chosen one of these programs for becoming a medical professional in this field.
As a medical assistant, you will be trained to work both in the front and back office of a medical clinic, performing duties such as managing patient registration, scheduling appointments, verifying insurance, triage, and working directly with doctors assisting in patient medical history and examination, phlebotomy, measuring vital signs and EKG, sterilizing instruments for minor surgery, and performing common laboratory procedures.
Once the didactic portion of the program is completed successfully, you will undergo 200 hours of clinical externship either in a medical office, clinic, or in a local hospital affiliated with the program. Furthermore, you will be provided with course materials that will help support your journey to preparation for the Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) certification examination provided by the American Medical Technologists (AMT).
The MBC program at Swedish Institute is designed to provide you, the student, with the appropriate didactic theory and skills required to begin an entry-level career in billing and office administration. You will also be provided with course materials to assist in preparation for your National Health Career Association (NHA) Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) certification examination.
Swedish Institute will prepare you to navigate the real world medical environment. We have passionate and experienced instructors who actively work in the field to assist you towards meeting your goals. We welcome you with open arms.
