Ophthalmic Medical Assistant

Shared program with Lakeshore Technical College

The Ophthalmic Medical Assistant program prepares students for employment in ophthalmic and optometric practices and in retail optical settings. Students apply technical skills to perform pre-screening and specialty testing, assist with dispensing glasses and contact lenses, and perform office management duties including maintaining patient information and billing and insurance processes.

This is a Lakeshore Technical College program offered at Gateway Technical College as a shared program. A shared program is a formal partnership agreement between two or more Wisconsin technical colleges which allows you to attend courses and complete your program locally, though your degree will be granted by another technical college.

Program courses will be offered on Gateway’s Racine Campus using Instructional Television in conjunction with an instructor-led hands on lab.

Interested students should work with an LTC Career Coach to submit an admission application and apply for financial aid at Lakeshore Technical College. Call (920) 693-1162 or email careercoach@gotoltc.edu for assistance.
