Healthcare is an exciting and growing field with a need for caring and patient individuals. With our Diploma and Associate Degree* Medical Assisting programs, you can develop the perfect combination of knowledge, hands-on skills and patient care. By developing patient relationships and lending your expertise, you can not only help doctors and caregivers, you can help lift a patient's spirits. You can get you started in this highly respected career by building the necessary communication and professional skills that are essential to the medical field. By preparing you to interact directly with patients and caregivers, you'll then be able to learn the skills necessary to provide them with administrative assistance, conduct laboratory work, and administer clinical care.
Because certain skills are better learned by doing, our Medical Assistant program provides a true sense of working in the medical field. In our Doctor's Office Classroom (DOC), you will have the opportunity to work in a simulated real-life environment. In this setting, students will be able to assume the roles of office personnel and patients while performing tests and practicing the skills that will be needed on the job. From taking medical histories to operating medical equipment and collecting and preparing lab specimens, you can receive invaluable practical training and experience prior to your employment in the Healthcare field.
