New medical assistants in training start with the basics, including learning how a medical office functions and proper conduct in a medical office and medical laboratory setting. They also learn basic lab skills like how to take and record blood pressure and basic vital signs.

In the upper modules of our Fort Worth Medical Assisting program, students take part in clinical activities like:

  • Dissection labs, where beef hearts and other lab organs are examined and dissected.
  • Suturing clinics, where students learn suturing methods and practice them on pigs’ feet.
  • Casting techniques, where students set casts on other students and get to keep the casts once they’re removed!
  • Mock clinics, where students pose as medical patients and learn to perform many of the skills they’re learning in class, like communicating with patients, taking vital signs, and assisting the physician in the exam area.

At the end of the program, a month-long externship allows students a chance to learn the job in the field.(1,2)

Included in the cost of tuition is the first attempt of the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam.(3,4)

Program Summary

The Medical Assisting Diploma Program provides training in both administrative and clinical procedures, including the basic elements of coding for the healthcare and insurance industries. The objective of this Program is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions such as medical assistant, clinical or medical administrative assistant, insurance billing clerk, medical biller, collections and billing clerk, or medical receptionist in work locations such as hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, medical supply businesses, and home health agencies.

Program completion normally requires 12 months for full-time students. The Program is divided into 12 monthly academic periods (modules) comprised of 11 months of classroom and laboratory instruction and one externship period, which are delivered in a hybrid format. In the hybrid format, some courses are delivered residentially and some courses are delivered via distance education (i.e., on-line).

In order to be eligible for the externship period, students must successfully complete all courses in the academic periods and must have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.

Upon successful completion of all areas of this Program, graduates will be awarded a Diploma in Medical Assisting.
