Medical Assistant Certificate
Students are instructed on the clinical skills needed to work in medical doctors’ offices, HMOs, clinics and at hospitals with in-patients and in exam rooms. Our Medical Assisting program is focused entirely on the clinical technical requirements and requires 4 classes.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports the Medical Assisting employment is expected to grow by 29% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Demand will stem from physicians hiring more medical assistants to do routine administrative and clinical duties so that physicians can see more patients. Upon completion of the classroom academics, a 160 hour externship will be provided in a medical facility. Medical Assistants play an important role in many healthcare environments, including various positions in hospitals performing blood draws, EKGs, basic medical, lab and exam procedures, vital signs, injections, and patient clinical assessment.

Upon successful course and externship completion, students will have the opportunity to become a Nationally Registered Medical Assistant (RMA). Our Program is pre-approved by The American Registry of Medical Assistants.
