By William Hauselberg Subscribe to RSS | February 20th 2012 | Views:

Allied health professionals work as a key part of medical teams in a variety of health care settings, providing support to doctors and nurses to care for patients. Allied healthcare professionals are found in a number of environments: clinical, community, business, education, research, and more. Professionals in allied health can work at varying levels of patient contact, depending on what field they choose. Career options for those who choose to pursue a career in allied health are almost limitless. In fact, there are over 100 possible careers in the field of Allied healthcare. Of those careers, the demand for medical and administrative assistants is on the rise.

For Skokie residents who are caring, compassionate and like to work as a team member, consider a career as an allied healthcare professional.

How Do You Become an Allied Health Professional

To become a medical or administrative assistant, licensure and certification is required. At a Skokie health care school, students can choose either a clinical or administrative track. Through a clinical track, students train to become a medical assistant. The training provided within this track prepares students for Phlebotomy Technician Certification and either a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) or a Registered Medical Assistant (RMA). Students in the clinical track are prepared to handle exam room procedures including obtaining medical histories and vital signs, lab procedures including the sterilization of equipment, administration of medications, and certain administrative duties. Coursework includes training on professional development; customer service; medical administrative procedures; anatomy and physiology; clinical, lab and phlebotomy procedures; medical billing and coding; and ethics.

Students who wish to pursue the administrative track will be prepared for NHA, CMAA, and NHA CBCS or AHIMA CCA certification. Coursework includes professional development, medical insurances methodology, anatomy and physiology, and training in ICD 9 and CPT.

As the demand for allied health professionals continues to grow, now is the perfect time to consider training on either a clinical or administrative track. Training at a Skokie health care school will not only put you on the path to success, but also allows you the flexibility of morning, afternoon, evening and weekend classes to accommodate students with busy schedules. Look for a school that is accredited by North Central Association and licensed by the Illinois State Board of Education.
