Professional development for healthcare professionals is commonly offered as day-long conferences or short seminars. Industry experts provide information on current issues or topics relevant for specific groups within healthcare, such as dental assistants, massage therapists, medical assistants, nurses, social workers and more. WITC works closely with accrediting associations to approve courses for industry-specific CEU hours.
Workshops presented by area educators and experts in the medical field will assist the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) to earn valuable continuing education toward recertification. These workshops address a variety of issues and diagnoses as well as new developments in medicine. CMAs will gain insights and knowledge to enhance their professional career. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are pre-approved by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA).
This course is being offered to allow a tracking module for the student to practice and challenge their psychomotor exam given by the national registry for Paramedic.
