Medical Assisting Program earns continued reaccreditation nod

Meridian Community College’s Medical Assisting Technology Program has been awarded continuing accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Program (CAAHEP). 

Program Coordinator and Instructor Gloria Adams was happy to learn of the reaccreditation. “It ensures that our program teaches the needed subject matter,” she said. “It’s also important that it proves our program has gone through a third-party assessment and has been identified as competent,” she added. 

The Medical Assisting Technology Program at MCC, a 65-credit-hour program that awards the associate of applied science degree, gives students the knowledge and skills to help ensure job placement in the ever-growing medical field. Medical assistants are trained as multi-skilled health care delivery team members and perform business administrative and clinical procedures. 

Adams, who started the program at the College in 2013, said 83 students have graduated from the program since its beginning. Current students are on track to graduate in August. 

The next comprehensive evaluation by CAAHEP is scheduled for Spring 2033, ensuring the program’s continued alignment with industry standards.
