- Delaware Technical and Community College – Wilmington, DE
Students who pursue medical assistant training at Delaware Technical and Community College in Wilmington, Delaware will receive an Associate in Science degree at the conclusion of their program.
DTCC provides prospective students with a breakdown of cost of the program itself. Assuming you are an in-state student attending the program full-time, you can expect to pay $1,509 per semester. There are additional fees as well, like the $1,200 for textbooks (for both years you are in school) and $75 for a uniform.
Students are also expected to pay certain fees in association with their application and overall enrollment. Payment will be expected for things such as a criminal background check, drug test, and certification or registration fees.
What’s great about DTCC is that they also provide what is termed a “Technical Standards” document, which essentially gives you an idea of what you can expect to encounter while both in school and at work on the job.
For example, DTCC’s Technical Standard document says that medical assistant students will have to get a little physical, at least to the extent of a lot of reaching up and down, a little bit of crawling or crouching, and a little bit of bending.
The document also lists personal traits that you will need to exhibit, such as being able to properly follow instructions, perform complex tasks, and maintain your poise while in a stressful environment.
There are also environmental portions of your job to consider. For example, while it will be your job to greet patients and sometimes be a liaison between a physician and his or her patients, you will also have to be comfortable working alone. You may, at times, also have to deal with being exposed to certain fumes, dust, and unpleasant odors.
