As a medical assistant (MA), you would be an indispensable member of a healthcare team, directly assisting a physician or RN. This program prepares you for an active role in providing care—assisting with examinations, carrying out select medical and diagnostic procedures, collecting specimens, and performing routine laboratory tests.
The program focuses on laboratory and clinical procedures, insurance and finance, medical terminology, and skills to keep a medical office running smoothly. You’ll also get valuable on-the-job experience. Graduates become medical assistants, laboratory assistants, phlebotomists, insurance clerks, and electrocardiogram technicians in a variety of medical settings.
