The Medical Assistant program provides our students with training for a future in a medical back office. Students are given the training for the most common medical assistant functions required in today’s workforce including medical clinical procedures, electronic health records (EHR), electronic medical records (EMR), and pharmacology. Students will also complete a 180-hour externship. This program normally takes three (3) terms plus the 180-hour externship to complete.
Students must complete the core courses (those with a MED prefix) with a minimum of a “C” to graduate. Evening students must understand that while all coursework may be completed during the evening hours, the 180-hour externship (MED290) must usually be completed during the day. Credit Hours: 57
