Student and Graduate Opportunities

Penn Highlands Healthcare offers opportunities for individuals, college students, and graduate medical students who are looking to advance their everyday experience and gain valued skills in their profession. We are doing our part to make sure families today – and in the future – get the care they need. We are helping to train tomorrow’s medical staff through our programs.

Certified Clinical Medial Assistant

Penn Highlands Healthcare offers a 14-week Certified Clinical Medical Assistant program through Brockway Center for the Arts & Technology. This program is dedicated to ensuring that the students are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for success. This accelerated program requires at least one year of working within a physician’s office to learn billing and other office processes. If an individual is unable to meet the requirement of one year in a physician’s office, Penn Highlands Healthcare offers the opportunity for individuals to work as a Patient Service Representative. This one year will allow the individual to receive the experience needed and to qualify for a future class.
