What will you learn?
You’ll learn how to become a vital part of a medical office setting, hospital or outpatient clinic and how to be caring and confident with the patients you help. You’ll take blood pressure, clean wounds, take fluids and learn clinical, lab and office procedures. Upon completion, you’ll be ready to sit for the AMT certification exam.
Medical Assistant Certificate? Associate Degree? We can help!
Our Medical Assistant program offers both a certificate and associate degree options.
You can’t get a job in this field without passing the American Medical Technologist (AMT) certification exam. We’ll make sure you’re ready and eligible to take it with confidence.
Even if you’re working right now, you can do this program! In fact, lots of employers are offering scholarships to current employees exhibiting potential. Raising your hand to let them know you’re interested in continuing education could set you apart from the competition.
Are you a perfect fit? This program is for you if you:
- want to learn valuable healthcare skills
- are ready to add credibility to your resume
- would like to perform patient care
- like the idea of working in a lab, pharmacy or medical office
- are ready to invest in your future!
Get ready to start making a difference — quickly!
Jobs are available. You just need to be ready. The population is aging. Technology is advancing. The healthcare field is exploding. Qualified people are in demand. The field is predicted to keep growing — to the tune of 23 percent during the next decade, according to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
A medical assistant certificate will help you get your foot in the door. Your certificate will serve as evidence of a certain number of blood draws, so-called “pokes” via an internship or on your own. Knowing how to take fluids, clean wounds and take blood pressure readings will give you the edge you need.
With just three more classes, you could be sitting pretty with your associate degree. The great thing is, the last three classes needed for an associates are all available online and if you’re already on the job in the healthcare field, you can fit classes around your work and family schedules and your employer might even foot some or all of those expenses.
Whether you complete your certificate or earn an Associate of Applied Science degree, you’ll have solid experience, education and training that will create a future that will look much different than it would without all that credibility.
