About this course:
Medical Assisting with Limited X-ray, Associate
The Medical Assisting with Limited X-Ray 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. Students learn not only in the classroom, but also in a lab that simulates the typical facilities and equipment found in a physician’s office, including microscopes, EKG machines, exam tables and medical instruments.
In addition to classroom and lab instruction, students spend the last 180 hours of their program on an externship site, where, under supervision, they have the opportunity to experience firsthand the working environment they’ll be entering.
