Programs in Medical Assistant and Surgical Technologist Launch in October

Clinical and Administrative Medical Assistant

Next month Swedish Institute will launch two new programs—Clinical and Administrative Medical Assistant and Surgical Technologist. Eva Skuka, M.D., will oversee both programs as Dean for Allied Health.

One of the aspects that makes the Medical Assistant Program unique is its education in both clinical and administrative aspects of the profession. Surgical Technologist will focus on the technical knowledge needed in the modern operating room. However, both programs will include the empathetic interpersonal skills so important when helping people through what may be challenging situations.

Both programs lead to an Associate in Occupational Studies degree. For more information speak with an Admissions Advisor on the 5th floor.
