Georgia Medical Institute, founded in 1977, has become a primary training school for medical personnel in the Atlanta area – with campuses in Jonesboro, Marietta, downtown Atlanta and Norcross. GMI offers up-to-date programs in high-demand professions. Each school contains spacious modern classrooms with attached laboratories, computer and typing labs and a student lounge.
The Medical Assisting modular program is designed to train students to function effectively and safely as integral members of the medical healthcare team. The program is a comprehensive course of study that combines basic knowledge with applied skills mastered in the classroom and laboratory.
Students will be trained to perform clinical tasks including EKG’s, vital signs, injections, venipuncture and X-rays. The program is designed into three modular formats, thus allowing students to begin training in any particular module. Students entering the Medical Assisting program are expected to take the national certification exam to become a Registered Medical Assistant (RMA). Students become certified only after passing the certification exam. Students in the Medical Assisting program will have the opportunity to become certified in Community CPR.
