UH-Hilo to host ‘Medical Terminology’ classes
The University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service and the University of California at San Diego are teaming up this summer to bring “Medical Terminology” courses.
The classes are scheduled from 5-7 p.m. June 16-27, with sessions in Hilo on Mondays and Thursdays in UH-Hilo’s UCB 115, and Tuesdays and Fridays at the North Hawaii Education and Research Center in Honokaa. The courses are taught by Donna Stern, who has more than 25 years experience serving adult learners in the private and public sectors.
“Medical Terminology” is required for a career as a medical assistant, along with related fields such as case management, medical coding and billing, health information technology and more. The course qualifies for Employment and Training Fund (ETF) subsidies.
As an ETF vendor, CCECS provides training for employees referred to the program by their employers. For qualified employers, ETF pays half the cost of tuition, up to $250, while the employer pays the other half and any excess balance. Federal, state and county employers and their employees are not eligible.
To qualify, participants must register for this class by June 2. For more information, call 974-7664.
