(TSI-Waived Program)

Courses in Medical Assisting prepare the student to work in many different settings such as physicians’ offices, clinics, and group practices. As managed care compels physicians to contain costs and manage human resources more efficiently, the demand for medical assistants is rising. MDCA courses should be taken in the order prescribed in the curriculum. Any graduate of the certificate program will be eligible to apply to sit for the national qualifying examinations for certification as a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), and Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) from the National Healthcare Association (NHA).
