Florida Skin Center to offer medical assistant externship to students at Southern Technical College

December 1, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Florida Skin Center has entered into a three-year agreement with Southern Technical College Fort Myers that offers a 160-hour, unpaid medical assistant externship to school-selected students in the associate and diploma programs. The externship, otherwise known as a temporary training program in a workplace as part of one's course of study, is set to launch in the fourth quarter of this year.

Two students per semester will be assigned to the Fort Myers, Cape Coral and/or Lehigh Acres locations to observe physicians and physician assistants and receive hands-on training under the supervision of an onsite provider.

Then, Florida Skin Center will evaluate each student on general, administrative and clinical medical assisting, as well as professionalism and appearance. Skillsets include medical terminology, ethics, charting, assisting with physical exams, sterilization of instruments, clinical pharmacology, minor surgery, emergency response, electrocardiography and phlebotomy - similar to the practices developed in Florida Skin Center's pre-existing 90-day MA program.

For additional information about the program, call 239-561-3376.
