The Medical Assistant program is designed to prepare competent medical assistants to meet the needs of an ever-expanding allied health field. Medical assistants are multi-skilled health professional specifically educated to work in ambulatory settings performing administrative and clinical duties. The practice of medical assisting directly influences the public’s health and well-being, and requires the mastery of a complex body of knowledge and specialized skills requiring both formal education and practical experience that serve as standards for entry into the profession. The goal of the program is to prepare competent entry-level medical assistants in cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.

The Medical Assisting program is a 24-month curriculum designed to prepare individuals to perform the duties of a medical assistant who functions in an acute care clinical setting or physician’s office in the areas of medical office administration, clinical lab procedures, and examining room assisting. Upon completion of the program the graduate will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree.
