Altierus Career College in Orange Park, formerly Everest University, has a partnership with Cancer Specialists of North Florida, the largest cancer practice in Jacksonville. Cancer Specialists’ medical assistants are trained to perform a mix of tasks including scheduling MRIs, performing CTs and obtaining patients’ vitals, and choreographing patients’ visits throughout the office. That training begins in the classroom and medical labs at college campuses like Altierus. From there, students advance to full-time 200-hour externships at medical facilities.
