Occupancy for Arizona College’s new Mesa campus, located at 163 N. Dobson, is planned for this November with recruitment beginning shortly after for those who wish to start their chosen allied health training program in January 2013!
A wide variety of programming will be available for students at Arizona College’s new Mesa campus, including the following career paths:
Health Information Technology – Health Information Technology is an allied health career field for those with strong organizational and data management skills. Our programs feature billing and coding training and the opportunity to gain real-world experience in this field through an externship prior to graduation. At Arizona College, students who choose this career path have the option of pursuing either our Health Information Specialist diploma or our Health Information Technology associate degree.
Dental Assisting – For those who enjoy working closely with patients, are good at multitasking, and have strong communication skills, Dental Assisting is a great fit. Dental Assistants play a vital role in a busy medical environment with responsibilities including everything from taking X-rays, to assisting the dentist during cleanings and procedures, to providing patients with postoperative care and instruction.
Medical Assisting – Medical Assisting involves performing a variety of tasks to keep the medical office running smoothly. Daily tasks can include prepping patients for exams, checking vital signs, and collecting medical histories, as well as a variety of administrative duties. Like Health Information Technology, the Medical Assisting track offers prospective students the choice of earning either a diploma or an associate degree.
Pharmacy Tech – This technical line of work demands individuals with meticulous attention to detail. Pharmacy Technicians work in busy pharmacy settings and play a crucial role in providing quality patient care by acting as the gatekeepers of prescribed medications, compounds, and devices.
