Practicum Requirements

All students enrolled in the Medical Assistant program are required to attend a mandatory practicum orientation prior to being placed at a practicum site.  Students will be notified well in advance of the day, time, and location of the orientation meeting. Failure to attend this mandatory orientation will result in withdrawal or failure of MED2280.

To pass the practicum course, students must remain at the site for the duration of their scheduled assignment, accumulate the total number of prescribed hours as outlined in the Medical Assistant Practicum Handbook, and successfully complete all course requirements. If, for some reason, a student is unable to remain at the practicum site for the duration of his/her assignment, the student must contact the instructor and the practicum coordinator immediately.
