Lexington District One partners with Lexington Medical Center, Midlands Technical College, to develop medical assisting program

Lexington County School District One announces a new medical assisting program, housed at Lexington Technology Center, in partnership with Lexington Medical Center and Midlands Technical College. Rising Lexington One 10th graders can apply now for classes that begin in August 2023.

“The medical assisting program at Lexington District One will serve as a gateway and accelerated pathway to the medical field,” says Bryce Myers, Lexington Technology Center executive director. “Students can become a full-time medical assistant, or they can use that certification as a foundation to pursue advanced degrees and certifications while working and making connections with health care workers inside the Lexington Medical Center organization as a medical assistant.”

Beginning sophomore year, students will travel to Lexington Technology Center to enroll in various health science classes, including medical assisting, medical terminology, basic medical laboratory techniques, anatomy & physiology, medical assisting office skills, medical office clinical skills, and medical office management. Students will be required to take first aid and CPR prior to enrollment in the program. In their senior year, students will be immersed in clinical training, provided by Lexington Medical Center.
