Medical Assisting

Medical Assisting careers can open the doors to working alongside doctors and nurses in many health care settings. Some people focus their training on the clinical side of the business, so they can have a more direct hands-on approach with patients. Others focus on the office management side of the business, where management, administration and technological skills allow them to excel. Wherever you decide to focus, completing your medical assisting training can give you the opportunity to work in a doctor’s office, hospital, long-term care facility or other health care facility helping people in your community. Before graduating you take the American Medical Tech (AMT) Exam. Once passed, you earn the RMA Credential and are a Registered Medical Assistant.
