Medical Assisting Graduate Assists with COVID-19 Treatment and Prevention
Ladia Gibson, a Keiser University Orlando campus Medical Assisting program graduate, is now working as a Registered Medical Assistant with Orlando Physicians Group. Now assisting with efforts to treat and prevent the spread of COVID-19, she is serving to screen and triage patients outside of the office. Gibson recently shared with Student Services Director Dennis Ferraro that she is appreciative of her Keiser University professors, and will not forget the institution and the people who helped her to become who she is today.
Keiser University’s Associate of Science degree in Medical Assisting prepares students to perform medical assisting duties under the direct supervision of a physician. Responsibilities include preparing examination rooms, taking vital signs, assisting in laboratory operations and minor surgical procedures, giving injections, executing venipuncture, performing urinalysis, pregnancy, blood sugar, and various other laboratory tests, taking x-rays, administering electrocardiograms, and more. Medical assistants also learn to function in an administrative capacity, including patient communications, maintaining patient records, billing, scheduling appointments, ordering supplies and processing insurance claims.
