Top Continuing Education Trends According to the NHA
Healthcare is a dynamic and constantly changing field, so it is important for healthcare professionals, including Medical Assistants, Dental Assistants, and Medical & Dental Administrative Assistants, to stay up to date on the latest technology and methods through continuing education. In a recent blog post, the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) revealed the top trends in continuing education today, including:
Students learn best when they are able to engage and interact with the material. In particular, simulation and team-based activities are great ways to reinforce and build upon what they’ve learned.
At ACI Medical & Dental School, our students receive hands-on training with state of the art equipment in our on-site laboratory.
According to the NHA, there is an increased demand for healthcare professionals to have a wider knowledge base beyond their specific discipline, which ultimately leads to better patient care and cooperation among healthcare teams.
At ACI, students learn concepts that can be applied to a variety of healthcare settings. In particular, students in our Administrative Assistant program will be prepared to work in either the medical or dental field, doubling their potential job opportunities and their value to employers.
Studies have shown that a personalized learning experience can have a very positive impact on a student. At ACI, students receive comprehensive instruction from industry professionals in a nurturing, supportive environment. We are dedicated to the success of every student!
Filling the Knowledge and Skills Gap
According to the NHA, students learn better when they supplement what they learn in class with additional training. In addition to our medical & dental programs, ACI students complete a 180-hour internship at a medical or dental facility to reinforce what they learn in class with hands-on career training.
