Medical Assistant Apprenticeship Now Available

Memorial Hospital in North Conway recently welcomed eight new medical assistant students who are participating in the hospital’s first-ever Medical Assistant Apprenticeship Program, in partnership with White Mountains Community College (WMCC). Tuition and fees for the program are funded by proceeds from Memorial’s 2020 golf tournament and grants from Citizens Bank.

Students will participate in a credit-bearing apprenticeship program aimed at filling open positions at Memorial’s primary care practices. They will also rotate through the hospital’s specialty care offices, as they spend two days in the classroom at WMCC, with a third day allotted toward studying, and two days on-site at Memorial Hospital. Upon completion of the nine-month program, students will be certified medical assistants at Memorial Hospital.
