Overview

Six classrooms, two clinical labs, and two computer labs are dedicated to our Medical Assisting program in Mobile. Medical Assisting students wear blue scrubs and name badges during their entire program, so they can get accustomed to the typical uniform of the job. Within the first few weeks of class, we introduce medical assisting students to the basics of a medical office and cover vital signs and the use of lab equipment.

In clinical labs, students have a chance to practice on basic equipment found in a medical office, including:

  • Phlebotomy Equipment
  • Venous blood collection and urine collection products

  • Microscopes/centrifuges to spin and analyze blood and urine test results
