The goal of the Medical Assistant program is to prepare competent, entry-level medical assistants in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains. To achieve this goal, students will be trained in all aspects of medical office practice including administrative tasks and back office clinical tasks. Upon successful completion of all required courses, students will participate in a non-paid externship in a medical office. Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the American Association of Medical Assistants Certified Medical Assistant Certification exam.
Students may take the radiology practical technician portion of the Medical Assistant program as a stand alone course.
