Medical Assistant

The Medical Assistant program educates students in basic anatomy and physiology; medical terminology; medical law and ethics; patient psychology and communications; medical office procedures; and clinical diagnostic, examination, testing, and treatment procedures. Students will also learn how to employ infection control practices and provide personal care skills according to individual patient needs.

This program is designed to prepare students for a number of entry-level positions in the health care field. A student will complete the Nurse Aide Training curriculum, which accomplishes two goals. First, it gives the student a good base in which to enter the Medical Assistant job market. Second, if a student must drop out of school before completing the Medical Assistant course, they become employable as a Certified Nurse Aide, as long as they have completed all Nurse Aide Training requirements. A student who completes the Medical Assistant course will qualify for various positions in the medical field. Positions a Medical Assistant is qualified to perform are: Receptionist, Physician’s Office Medical Assistant, Phlebotomist, Nurse Aide, and Home Health Aide.


The philosophy of the Medical Assistant program is to prepare qualified students to be competent professionals in the field of Allied Health.

Our goal is to recruit, retain, and graduate students who will remain in the area as productive working citizens and directly contribute to the betterment and public health of the community. Reasonable accommodations will be granted to students with a qualified disability (see Policies and Procedures for ADA policy).
