Workforce Training Calendar

 Our first group of graduates from our Medical Office Assistant Refresher and Certification Program. 


DSRIP is opening doors to new jobs, opportunities and roles for healthcare workers – roles that enhance your scope of work and prepare you for community-based care.

Participants who take BPHC’s Medical Office Assistant Refresher Training are eligible to take an exam for national certification, which takes place on the last day of training.

One growing and important role is that of the Care Coordinator who works with the patient, doctor and the community to ensure that the patient is going to follow-up appointments and receiving any needed local services such as meal deliveries, smoking cessation programs, and mental health services.

Our Care Coordinator Training series ensures that workers in these roles have the preparation and support needed to coordinate care for people who have many medical and social service needs.

Communication is also critical to working with patients who come from diverse backgrounds and have various experiences with the health system.  BPHC trainings provide the skills and insights to listen, speak and offer care through the lens of a patient’s culture, beliefs, languages and communication style.
