Program Description

The Medical Office Assistant program prepares the graduate for entry-level employment in a variety of healthcare environments. Students learn theory and gain hands-on experience through internships with the local healthcare community.

Career Outlook
Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 23 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As their practices expand, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients. ¹
