AH 297 - Cooperative Education - Medical Assistant
2 Semester Hour Credits

Course Description: Cooperative Education is the "clinical component" of the medical assisting program. The course provides students with "hands on" practical experiences related to careers as medical assistants. This experience takes place in ambulatory care settings. The employer does an evaluation of the work experience; the faculty advisor and cooperative education coordinator oversee student placement and progress. Students are required to complete a project assigned by the faculty advisor. A minimum of 180 hours of work is required to earn two credits. DCB interns are covered under the ND University System liability insurance policy.

Schedule: Fall, Spring, and Summer. Completion of this course can be spread over two terms.

Delivery Method: Documents that must be completed are accessed online via Electronic Reserves and can be submitted by e-mail, fax, or mail. Students complete the requirements of the course at the work site. Students do not need to come to the campus at any time.
