The Learning @ Campus Series: The Cardiovascular System
The medical assistant program at Cybertex Institute of Technology, whether it’s at the Austin campus or the Killeen campus, emphasizes a thorough understading of anatomy and physiology. Students don’t just passively sit through lectures; they’re responsible for presentations in which they walk fellow students through systems of the body. They develop the skills they’ll need when interacting with and instructing patients, which is becoming an increasingly important part of the work that medical assistants are doing.
In this video, Cybertex medical assistant student Tiffany Slocum discusses the important network moving blood throughout the body, including the proper procedure for doing a blood draw to run tests in a laboratory—which, of course, is one of the most important tasks that a medical assistant has in helping to diagnose and cure patients.
This is just one example of the education that Cybertex medical assistant students master as they move toward completion of our program and certification. As we’ve noted in our series of articles on our medical assistant program, the medical assistant is becoming an increasingly important role on a medical team, and our training prepares medical assistants for the diverse range of responsibilities they have in providing patient care and in helping doctors diagnose patients.
If you’re interested in becoming a medical assistant, and showcasing your knowledge in the way that Tiffany and other Cybertex medical assistant program students have, contact our admissions department to get started.
