Waubonsee Medical Assisting Program Celebrates Perfect Pass Rate

The Waubonsee Community College Medical Assisting Program is celebrating a 100 percent pass rate on the Certified Medical Assistant (American Association for Medical Assistants - AAMA) Examination.

Lisa Giese, Medical Assistant Program Director and Instructor at Waubonsee, has taught the program for nearly a decade, and has had a 100 percent pass rate every year.

“I believe my students do so well because of all the hands-on experience they get in the classroom,” she said. “Also, I am so proud of all the hard work and dedication that all my students put forth throughout the program.”

Giese said many physicians’ offices in the area contact her every year asking for students for externship and employment because of the quality of knowledge her students demonstrate on the job. 

Waubonsee offers the medical assistant certificate at the Aurora Fox Valley Campus during the afternoon and evening. The required externship allows students to gain experience at a local physician's office, clinic or outpatient facility. This program can lead to national certification as a medical assistant.
