What is a Medical Assistant?
Medical assistants work in physicians’ offices, clinics, or other healthcare facilities. They are responsible for performing physician support services that help ensure medical facilities run smoothly. Medical assistants may work in a clerical, administrative, or clinical capacity, and may even be asked to perform more specialized tasks.
Program Length and Duration
The program is designed specifically for you to complete it on your own schedule and at your own pace. The online enrollment includes 12 months of program access to ensure that you have the time needed to complete the course.
Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 29 percent from 2016 to 2026, 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 a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.
