Thirteen students successfully completed the Medical Assistant training program on July 21, 2017, and graduated with their Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) certification. This accelerated program, which combined 10 weeks of intensive classroom training with 15 weeks of blended classroom and clinical instruction, was offered through a collaborative arrangement between Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Community College.

This is the second time in the past twelve months Washington University School of Medicine provided students with the opportunity to be paid clinical trainees while completing the Medical Assistant training program on their campus. Students completed their clinical instruction in departments such as Internal Medicine, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics and Surgery.

All students accepted into this program completed the prerequisite MoSTEMWINs Portal pre-employment training program and prepared to land their new jobs by taking advantage of the educational services provided through the MoSTEMWINs grant program offered through St. Louis Community College. Classes within the Medical Assistant training program are held Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Medical Assistants are in demand in the St. Louis area and enrollment is open now for individuals that want to get started in the MoSTEMWINs Portal training classes and prepare for Medical Assistant training program classes scheduled to start in October 2017.
