** Accepted students will be required to submit to a drug screening prior to their practicum experience. Positive drug screening will result in forfeiture of the practicum. All Medical Assisting students may be subject to random drug screens for cause during the program. Any student who refuses/fails to cooperate, or complete any required drug screening will be considered "positive" and dismissed from the program.
A complete listing of all requirements and policies/procedures for the program is available in the MA Student Handbook.
Potential employers for MTC Health Technology Programs may require criminal background investigations as conditions for employment. Any criminal background may preclude an individual from employment. Therefore, completing a MTC program does not guarantee future employment.
Once a student has met with an Admission Counselor, it is advantageous to make a follow-up appointment with the Medical Assisting Program Director, Peggy Smith.
