Certified Clinical Medical Assistant

Penn Highlands Healthcare offers a 14-week Certified Clinical Medical Assistant program through Brockway Center for the Arts & Technology. This program is dedicated to ensuring that the students are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for success.

This accelerated program requires at least one year of working within a physician’s office to learn billing and other office processes. If an individual is unable to meet the requirement of one year in a physician’s office, Penn Highlands Healthcare offers the opportunity for individuals to work as a Patient Service Representative.
