Preparing our future professionals

— Renee Gehman and Alicia Wike

The relationship between our Medical assisting program at the Lebanon County Career and Technical Center and the Lebanon Family Health Services began four years ago. The medical assisting students learn by doing and receiving valuable hands on experience at Lebanon Family Health.

Some of the things the students have been learning and doing at the LFHS are patient interaction, administrative skills, community health and clinical skills. They rotate their learning experiences through the clinic, pre-natal services and the WIC program.

Our favorite time of year is during April when MA students assist with the STI clinics and gain irreplaceable phlebotomy skills. Patient communication, the actual blood drawing process, called venipuncture and trouble-shooting are skills that can’t be learned from a book or in a classroom.

That’s why we are so thankful for the services and staff at LFHS for not only allowing our students to come and learn with them, but assisting them at becoming the best medical assistants that we know they can be.
