FHN is offering a Medical Assistant (MA) Registered Apprenticeship program with the Dept. of Labor through partnerships with The Workforce Connection and Highland Community College (HCC). Through this apprenticeship program MA students will have the opportunity to be employed by FHN and gain on the job training to complement the coursework at HCC as they train for a career in the medical assisting field.HCC’s Medical Assistant Program
The program is set up for students to attend class at HCC two days a week and work at FHN two days a week. During work time, students will be employed as a MA Student and receive on-the-job paid training, which outlines core competencies needed for successful completion of the apprenticeship program. A preceptor will be working with the MA Student to mentor and guide them as they learn the role of a MA.
After completing the requirements of the program, students will be ready to join the workforce as a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA). FHN Apprenticeship program students will have a much shorter orientation period as they will already be trained and have completed the competencies required for the role.
