Administrative Medical Assistants Graduate

The Potter County Education Council hosted a graduation ceremony for students in the Administrative Medical Assistant Program on May 30.

The five-month program was held in Coudersport through a cooperative effort between Pennsylvania College of Technology at Wellsboro, Cole Memorial Hospital, and the Education Council. Twelve individuals were recognized for completion of the program and are prepared for employment in medical or dental offices, hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities. During the graduation ceremony, over 50 percent of the class reported that they have already had interviews or job offers.

Certificates and pins were presented by Brenda Abplanalp, Director of North Campus Outreach Services to: Amber Hilliard, Keeley Lampman, Dawn Lowe, Tonya Miller, Samantha Rennells, Wendy Roys, Natalie Salamone, Blue Scheerer, Kari Stake, Melissa Stanton, and Laurie White. Daisy Scheerer also participated but will receive her certificate at a later date. Laurie White was presented an award for her academic achievement; perfect attendance awards were given to White, Lampman, and Roys. A reception for family and friends was held following the graduation ceremony.

The students completed 400 hours of classroom instruction followed by a 200-hour externship in local medical clinics and physicians’ offices. At the completion of all requirements, students are eligible to take the National Healthcareer Association’s certification exams for Medical Administrative Assisting (CMAA) and Medical Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS).

The next Administrative Medical Assistant Class is scheduled to begin in January 2015. For more information, contact the Education Council at (814) 274-4877.
