Great Bay Community College offers two medical programs to students looking to pursue a job in the healthcare field.
Medical Assistant Training Program
Learn to assist physicians by performing functions related to the administrative and clinical responsibilities of a medical office.
Great Bay Community College, in partnership with Core Physicians and Wentworth-Douglass Physician Corp., has developed a twelve-week Medical Assistant Certificate program of 320 hours of classroom instruction, hands-on lab experiences and a 160-hour practicum at local medical offices.
Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) Training Program
The LNA training program prepares you to work in a vital role providing direct patient care and emphasizes many areas of healthcare education including infection control, safety and proper body mechanics.
This five-week program, approved by the NH Board of Nursing and run by Manchester Community College, is now offered in Portsmouth at Great Bay Community College. It combines in-person instruction (24 hours clinical lab instruction & 60 hours of clinical training at a local healthcare facility) and 60 hours of online work.
