     How would you like to have a job that you love, and that is personally fulfilling? How about a job that can potentially provide steady income for you and your family? If you answered yes to these questions, perhaps it is time to consider a career in healthcare! Healthcare careers can offer reliable employment, and can be rewarding personally as well as professionally. What’s more, with a healthcare career there is often the potential for advancement. If this sounds good to you, a career as a Medical Assistant could be a good fit for you! 

     Healthcare workers are essential, and medical assistants are vital to our healthcare system. Medical assistants work directly with both patients and other healthcare workers, providing critical support and assistance to nurses, physicians, and doctors. As a medical assistant you may work in doctor’s offices, hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings. Medical assistants are responsible for both clinical and administrative tasks, including front office management, patient intake and preparing patients for procedures, measuring patients’ vital signs, administering medications and injections, and using the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system.

     At Central Coast College, our Medical Assistant program provides students with the essential skills to be successful in every capacity of their future positions. Learning from dedicated, experienced instructors, students in CCC’s Medical Assistant program learn the practical skills they need to enter the job market with confidence. Training modules teach medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology; diagnostic and treatment procedures, as well as medical office procedures and insurance billing. In addition to hands-on practice in supervised labs, students also receive real-world, on-the-job experience through an externship. CCC’s Medical Assistant diploma program can be completed in as few as 46 weeks! Graduates of the program receive a Certificate of Completion, and are prepared to test for a nationally-recognized MA certification.

     Central Coast College is a great choice for your MA training because CCC offers flexible career training programs paired with comprehensive student support and career services, and financial aid to those who qualify.
