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. Program completion times may vary based on individual performance/circumstances as well as the program selected
