October 24, 2014

College of Western Idaho (CWI) Workforce Development celebrated National Medical Assistant’s Week, Oct. 20-24, which served as a perfect culmination of the program for the current Medical Assistant class. This week a group of 15 students concluded their externships, which serves as the final phase of the program. In recognition of National Medical Assistant’s Week, Program Director Kathy Ozmer visited each of the clinical sites to share her appreciation for the students as well as the industry partners. This group is celebrating 100 percent job placement, which Ozmer attributes in large part to the strong relationships with local healthcare providers.
