Certificate Course Qualified Medical Assistant

This certificate course provides an approved and ground-breaking additional qualification for care workers, especially with special qualifications in anaesthesia and intensive care. Advanced and appropriate acute and intensive care has become impossible without trained and specialised care workers. Politicians are more and more demanding qualified, non-physician healthcare specialists for delegated medical services. Here, large-scale coverage and performance-based salaries are of great significance.

The certificate course will prepare you for your daily tasks in acute and intensive care work environments and will pave your way to an academic degree. The curriculum features more than ten years of experience gathered by the “Herz- und Gefäßklinik” (Specialised Clinic for Coronary and Vascular Diseases) in Bad Neustadt a. d. Saale, where Qualified Medical Assistants are a vital part of the team working in the intensive care unit.
