Vincennes University says it will provide free healthcare training for eligible Hoosiers through Indiana’s Next Level Jobs Program. VU is collaborating with the Elmer Buchta Technology Center in Petersburg for Certified Clinical Medical Assistant training starting later this month.
According to the university, medical assistants are one of the highest-demand career paths in Indiana. The growth is due to technical advancements, an increase in outpatient offices, and an increase of elderly Americans in need of medical care.
“We are excited to begin this new partnership with Vincennes University to offer the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant training program for adults and existing businesses,” Executive Director of the Elmer Buchta Technology Center Ashley Polen Willis said. “During the pandemic, healthcare workers have been true heroes, and these occupations are greatly needed occupations. We look forward to offering this program at the Elmer Buchta Technology Center and look forward to expanding the talent pipeline in Pike County and the southwest region of Indiana.”
