USNH Yokosuka Launches New Medical Assistant Program

U.S. Naval Hospital (USNH) Yokosuka is expanding volunteer opportunities for the local Yokosuka community by starting a new Medical Assistant Program in collaboration with the Red Cross.

The Medical Assistant Program is a 10-week volunteer program that kicked off on Monday with 8 volunteers rotating in clinics throughout the hospital once they complete an initial two-week training.

The medical assistants will have forty-eight hours of classroom training and four hundred hours of clinical on-the-job training from this program.

The medical assistants serve in a variety of functions with a little broader scope than the current Red Cross volunteers already at the hospital.
