Medical Assisting with Limited X-Ray – Diploma
The Medical Assisting Diploma Program is designed to prepare graduates for an entry-level position in a physician’s office or medical clinic. The program emphasizes the development of clinical skills to train our students for positions such as Medical Assisting, Medical Receptionist and Health Plan Coordinator.
Our students learn in the classroom as well as in the laboratory which simulates the facilities, equipment and records both in both the clinical and administrative areas of medical centers. This gives the student hands-on experience that is essential to building confidence as a medical professional.
In addition to classroom and lab instruction, students enroll and complete an externship where they experience a first-hand, working environment they are preparing to enter. The 180-hour externship presents students with the opportunity to become familiar with the medical work space while under the guidance of a supervisor.
Limited X-Ray Training
Students may also choose to add x-ray training to their credentials. This additional program emphasizes the development of x-ray skills regarding the head, spine, chest and upper and lower extremities. Safety measures, positioning techniques and film assessment are also covered.
The addition of Limited X-ray provides graduates with a diversified skill set opening up additional job opportunities in a growing field. Limited X-Ray technology courses are offered at the Wilsonville-Health Career Institute and Springfield campuses.
“Pioneer Pacific was the right choice. My teachers are great and I've learned a whole lot. I'm looking to work in a VA Hospital because there's one in every major city and I could transfer to be closer to my family.“John McKey, Medical Assisting with Limited X-ray Alumni
