Medical/Clinical Assistant. 510801


A Medical Assistant performs administrative and/or clinical tasks to support the work of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals in the delivery of primary health care and patient care management.

Our Medical Assistant program provides students with real-world clinical skills that are essential to working in the modern medical office. An applied learning approach to the MA curriculum is threaded throughout each module to help you further develop the tactile and critical thinking skills necessary to assist with diagnostic procedures, facilitate examination and treatment of patients in a medical office practice, perform limited procedures, schedule diagnostic tests and consultations, maintain patient clinic records, and effectively support physicians, nurses, and other interdisciplinary team members.

The program is 41 weeks or 720-clock hours which includes 160 hours of supervised practicum in a clinic setting. The 160-hour practicum is a free clinical rotation with no financial remuneration. Classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm for 37 weeks.

The MA program provides students with the clinical, technical, and professional skills they need to be successful in the healthcare industry. Students are grounded with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of medical assisting, laboratory procedures, anatomy, clinical front office management, communication skills, cardiopulmonary and EKG, nutrition and immunology, phlebotomy, medical terminology, first aid applications, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training.

Students will be prepared to assist medical office practitioners in administering therapeutic shots/immunizations, performing lab testing and specimen collection, blood draw using phlebotomy skills, performing patient/client data entry procedures, and customer service skills.

Upon completion of the 41-week program, students will be awarded a Diploma in Medical Assisting and will have the clinical knowledge and proficiency required of a Medical Assistant. Students will be prepared to take the National Certification exam for Medical Assistant (CCMA) through the National Healthcare Association (NHA).
