We Proudly Present Medical Assistant Graduate Dominic Boose
“Graduation is not the end,” says Rockford Career College graduate Dominic Boose. “It's the beginning.” As Dominic progressed through our medical assistant program, she never lost sight of her goal: graduating so she could help patients in her community. Thanks to her determination and tremendous effort, she graduated on the President's List with a 4.0 GPA. We are so proud of her for achieving her educational and professional goals!
What You Learn in a Medical Assistant Program
For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Dominic took courses such as: MA Technology Fundamentals, Medical Office Emergencies, and Cardiac Care.
In these courses, she learned about:
- Microsoft Windows and its applications, such as desktop features, search capabilities, and file management, as well as creating, editing, and formatting documents and spreadsheets
- Wound recognition and basic treatment, patient triage through primary assessment, the medical assistant’s role in emergency preparedness and response, and CPR and basic First Aid techniques and methods
- The main body systems involved in cardiology (cardiovascular and respiratory); pulmonary issues including lung volume and capacity, pulmonary diseases, and airway obstructions; maintaining and operating electrocardiogram and pulmonary equipment; and identifying causes and corrections of artifacts
