NORTH CONWAY, NH – Memorial Hospital recently welcomed eight new Medical Assistant (MA) students. The students are participating in the hospital’s first-ever Medical Assistant Apprenticeship Program, in partnership with White Mountains Community College. Tuition and fees for the program are funded by proceeds from Memorial’s 2020 golf tournament, plus grants from Citizens Bank.
Students will participate in a credit-bearing apprenticeship program, aimed at filling open positions at Memorial’s primary care practices. Participants will also rotate through the hospital’s specialty care offices, as they spend two days on-site and two days in the classroom at WMCC, with a third day allotted toward studying. Upon completion of the nine-month apprenticeship, program graduates will be certified medical assistants at Memorial Hospital.
