by Seattle Medium
The Puget Sound Area is in need of more Medical Assistants and Seattle’s students need more access to sustainable careers. That’s why Kaiser Permanente teamed up with Seattle Colleges to create the Career Launch Scholarship program to train Medical Assistants, the frontline care providers who welcome patients into medical offices by taking and charting vitals and helping physicians provide great care. The program, which enrolled eighteen future MAs in 2018, provides full tuition plus expenses for books and supplies to support 24 entering students in fall 2019.
