Our Medical Assisting graduates receive hands-on training in simulated medical laboratory classrooms. Each lab is equipped with the same types of medical equipment used in physicians' offices.
You will spend most of your time taking classes that directly pertain to the medical assisting career, enabling you to complete the program in as little as 10-16 months.
As part of the program, you will spend 8 weeks in an externship, which is designed to let students practice what they’ve learned.
