Welcome West Virginia Junior College -Bridgeport Campus
TimeNov. 14, 2011
to:Med. Asst. Students
Below are a few important things that students in the Medical Asst. Program need to be aware of:
1. Med Club Meeting Wed., Nov. 16, 2011 @ 1225 in the Med Lab-future plans are being discussed. Come join in.
2. For externships (whether voluntary or required) you will need several things:
Proof of vaccines (a copy must be on file) of MMR, TB, Tetanus, Hep. B, and possibly chicken pox (this may be required by some facilities). You can receive them from your own doctor, Harrison County Health Dept gives vaccines on Tues. (9-11am or 1-3pm) or you may show proof by obtaining a titer level (Health Dept does not perform titer levels).
If you are pregnant you must have a written consent from your doctor that you may participate in externship.
If you have recently undergone surgery or have a on going health condition you may be asked to get a release from your doctor. (This is an individual case by case basis.)
CPR card course C for health care providers and AED. If you do not have one then please see Mrs. Frye to sign up for class here at the school. She will sign you up according to graduation date and when your externship will start. CPR is a requirement to receive your degree. A signed copy of your card will need to go in your file.
If you have any questions you may stop into the med lab and I will try my best to answer them.
Thanks, Mrs. Williams
