Medical Assistant

Technical Diploma

The need for trained medical assistants is expected to increase much faster than average due to an aging population.

As a medical assistant, you will assist in the reception, examination, and treatment of patients. Mid-State’s Medical Assistant program provides you with valuable clinical and clerical skills such as scheduling appointments, maintaining medical records, performing various lab procedures, EKGs, injections, and sterilizing equipment. In addition to classroom learning, you will be required to participate in an unpaid clinical practicum, which are held at a variety of medical offices and clinics in the area.

The Medical Assistant program prepares you with the cognitive, psychomotor, and behavioral knowledge and skills you need for a rewarding career working in ambulatory healthcare facilities, physician offices, dental and chiropractic clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, schools, and community-based residential facilities. As a successful graduate of this program, you are eligible to take one of two voluntary National Certification Exams for Medical Assistants.

Mid-State’s Medical Assistant program has an average retention rate of 94.51% for the past five years (2010-2014), which exceeds the Medical Assisting Education Review Board threshold of >=60%.

The Medical Assistant program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB).
