Medical course set to roll out

Vancouver Island University to hold special course in Parksville

Responding to the “changing face of medical services in our community,” Vancouver Island University is reintroducing a medical office assistant (MOA) program in Parksville this fall, explained continuing education program coordinator Cheryl Dill.

She said they have offered the course twice before and 90 per cent of the graduates are now working in a related field in the mid-Island area.

With the coming health centre and services shifting around new doctors and facilities such as Family Place, Dill said they intend for the course to be permanent this time. She added they expect it to fill up fast as the fall semester approaches.

She points out that Suzanne Beyrodt-Blyt, the main instructor, lives and works as an MOA in the area and “she really understands the lay of the land.”

They are working with the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) and local medical associations to ensure they will provide the latest details about the job as it will exist when students graduate from the part-time two semester certificate program.
