Medical Assistant Training Program

School-based and on-the-job training

Lamprey Health Care partnered with Great Bay Community College to create a Medical Assistant Training Program.  The paid Medical Assistant training program includes eight weeks of classroom training with Great Bay Community College and four weeks of a clinical internship with Lamprey Health Care.

Lamprey Health Care will pay tuition. Successful completion of this program will require passing a final exam and showing competency in selected skills. The clinical internship will include four weeks of training under the direct supervision of the Clinical Nurse Manager and a preceptor/mentor.
