AAS Associate Program
Division of Health Professions
The Medical Assisting field combines the clinical and administrative worlds in healthcare, making medical assistants both extremely valuable and versatile to their employers. Our program covers all of the business and healthcare foundations you need to thrive in this exciting industry, and we require an externship so you can apply your classroom and lab skills to real-world situations. Our AAS in Medical Assisting graduates are multi-skilled health professionals, well-prepared to assist with patient care management, perform both administrative and clinical procedures, and, when necessary, assist in the supervision of office personnel.
Medical Assisting students, upon successful completion of the program, will be prepared for employment in clinics, hospitals, and particularly, in medical group practices, where both experience and expertise in clinical skills are required. Students are eligible to take the certification exam to become a certified Medical Assistant, which is offered by the American Association of Medical Assistants. Graduates are ideal candidates for bachelor’s degree programs in fields like Healthcare Informatics.
