If you want to be at the heart of healthcare, consider a Medical Assistant Specialized Associate Degree.

Medical Assistants are in high demand because they offer a healthy mix of clinical and administrative skill under the direction of a physician. Clinical duties may include taking and recording vital signs and medical histories, preparing patients for examination, drawing blood, and administering medications as directed by the physician.

As part of this program, students will take courses in Medical Terminology, Anatomy Physiology, Phlebotomy, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, Medical Law Ethics, Medical Billing and Coding. In addition, they will take three clinical courses which include learning and practicing a variety of hands on skills used to assist the physician.

After graduation, you’ll be prepared to take tests for CMA (Certified Medical Assistant) and phlebotomy certifications — both of which improve your skill set as well as your career opportunities.
