New Digital Anatomy Boards donated to STC's Medical Assisting Program
October 9, 2017 – The Medical Assisting Program at Southeastern Technical College (STC) have installed brand-new Digital Anatomy Boards in their classrooms and labs for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The boards were donated to the Swainsboro and Vidalia Medical Assisting classrooms and lab areas by Outcome Health, whose mission is to "activate the best health outcome possible for every person in the world," via their website. Founded in 2006, the platform has a presence in almost 20% of doctors' offices in the United States.
Having the boards in the classroom allows students to train with equipment that they may use in future employment. As of now, all 10 East Georgia Healthcare Center (EGHC) sites that currently employ 21 STC graduates have these boards, making it important for students in the program to become trained with the equipment.
"My thoughts behind having these in the classroom were to give the students, potential EGHC employees, the opportunity to become trained on the use of these educational materials to better serve the patients in the clinical sites and in future MA positions," Kimberly Brown, Medical Assisting Director and Instructor, said.
Brown uses the boards in the classroom to go over topics covered in class and allows the students to get a visual illustration of what they have been learning.
The Medical Assisting Program at STC has provided area clinics, hospitals, and other medical organizations with graduates who have a wide medical knowledge base and the necessary skills to succeed in the workplace.
