The Medical Assisting program is designed to bridge the gap between the traditional nurse in the physician's office and the medical secretary. This diploma prepares graduates for a position in the medical office in a clinical capacity. In addition to clinical and basic laboratory procedures, students learn current medical technology, medical codes, and other skills necessary to excel in the healthcare industry. Upon completion of a Diploma in Medical Assisting, students will have taken a variety of courses related to the healthcare field. Courses include Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmacology, Phlebotomy, and other Medical Lab classes. Students will also qualify to sit for national certification as a Medical Assistant (CMA), Phlebotomy Technician, and EKG Technician. To ensure a well-rounded medical assistant, the Medical Assisting program covers medical insurance and coding, medical transcription, and medical bookkeeping as it relates to the medical office.
