MidMichigan Offering Patient Care Technician Training Program
MidMichigan Health is now accepting applications for its Ambulatory Patient Care Technician Trainee Program, a two-week paid training program. The goal of the program is to provide participants with the skills needed to hold a patient care technician position at MidMichigan Health, in an ambulatory or outpatient, location.
During the program, participants will learn how to provide basic clinical patient care and communicate with patients and other members of the patient care team. They will also develop the skills necessary to perform vitals, basic screens and lab specimen collections.
The program includes a combination of in-class and hands-on training. After the two-week program concludes, participants will take a final exam. Upon passing, they’ll receive their course certification, and be eligible for an ambulatory patient care technician position at MidMichigan Health.
The first program cohort will begin training on August 9, 2021. A high school diploma or GED is required to apply. Those who are interested in applying may visit www.midmichigan.org/pctprogram.
