WITC medical assistants recognized
Every year, the medical assistant students at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical
College celebrate Medical Assistants Recognition Week in October, as designated
by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA).
This year, WITC’s
medical assistant students created a display on WITC's New Richmond campus to
illustrate the many aspects of health care.
“Medical assistants are members of the health care delivery team and perform
administrative and clinical procedures,” says WITC instructor Kim Suo. “Because of
their versatility, medical assistants continue to be a popular career.”
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assisting is projected
to be one of fastest-growing occupations.
