CHICAGO – On July 2, Kirtland Community College students showcased their knowledge and school pride at the American Medical Technologists (AMT) Medical Assistant Student Challenge Bowl in Chicago. Competing against eight other schools from around the country, Kirtland students took home the first-place trophy.
The Medical Assistant Student Challenge Bowl is an educational competition open to all students enrolled in a Medical Assistant program who have not yet taken the AMT Medical Assistant exam. Each year, students put their knowledge to the test at AMT’s Annual Meeting to win the title of Medical Assistant Bowl Champions.
This year, Kirtland students Amber D’Arcy and Brenda Bartel came in first for each of three rounds of 25 questions. In the final round, they won with twice as many points as the other team, and were presented the winning trophy at the AMT Awards Banquet later that night.
