Is a Medical Assisting Career in your Future?
Students can study Medical Assisting in Kodiak with the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka starting in Fall 2022. Student can earn either an accredited Medical Assisting Certificate or a Health Sciences AAS degree with a Medical Assisting emphasis without leaving the island. Courses in the Medical Assisting Certificate are available online for lecture courses and in a hybrid format for clinical procedures. Twice each semester, students will spend a long weekend performing skills and competencies during clinical lab intensives with instructor observation (Assistant Professor and Program Director Amy Samuel). If Kodiak has enough students these lab intensive weekends will happen in Kodiak.
On October 28, 2021 Associate Professor and Medical Assisting Program Director Amy Samuel will visit Kodiak. She is interested in meeting with anyone who thinks Medical Assisting might be a good fit. You can schedule an in-person or virtual advising session with her anytime between 10 am and 6 pm.
