November 20, 2023
A novel program that trains people to be medical assistants marks five years of success and continues to grow. Forty new registered apprentices started the program earlier this month, and 20 apprentices graduate from the program on Nov. 17. Since the medical assistant registered apprenticeship program began in November 2018 at UW Health, it has provided education and training for more than 200 participants from the Madison area, mostly employees from UW Health, along with some employees from UnityPoint Health – Meriter and SSM Health, according to Bridgett Willey, director, Allied Health Education and Career Pathways, UW Health. “When we launched, we were the first registered apprenticeship program of its kind in Wisconsin and only the third in the nation,” Willey said. Medical assistants perform administrative and certain clinical duties under the direction of a physician. They often take and record vital signs and medical histories, prepare patients for examination, draw blood and administer medications as directed by physicians.
