Madison Potts – Medical Assistant

Posted: 11/07/2016

Madison Potts’ dream to help people began during a scary week of her little brother’s life. She intently observed the medical staff as they cared for and comforted him and their worried family. Fortunately, her brother recovered, and although it was a stressful time for all, Madison discovered her dream to work in the medical field and began her preparations.

Madison learned about MATC through her sister, who completed the Nurse Assistant program and absolutely loved being a CNA. Madison joined and finished the Medical Assistant program with a 180-hour externship at the Cardiovascular Center in the University of Utah Hospital. After assisting patients, procedures, and surgeries along with her clinical skills obtained from MATC received a job offer before the end of her externship!

Currently studying Sports Medicine at the U, Madison’s ambition is to attend graduate school and become a Physician’s Assistant. Not only is she already accumulating required direct patient care hours for P.A. School, she is following her passion with the fundamentals she learned at MATC.
