About our Medical Assistant Diploma

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 any other health care facilities that help 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.

It’s easy to see the bright side of medical assisting: it provides professional employment in a desirable environment with decent pay. On top of that, you can expect a very healthy job market for many years to come. Yet being a medical assistant also means having a job that can sometimes be quite demanding, and it’s often not glamorous.
