Description:  Training for an exciting and rewarding career as a Clinical Medical Assistant has never been easier! In today’s busy medical practices, Clinical Medical Assistants are vital members of the medical team.

This blended-learning program allows students to complete the majority of training online in the safety and comfort of their own homes. Lab days (classroom meetings) provide students the opportunity to further hone the skills required of a medical assistant.

Online classes are taught in real-time by a live instructor, classroom time is engaging, and students are able to interact with the instructor and other students. There is even an opportunity to practice medical assisting skills virtually.

In this course, students will learn to assist the physician in providing quality patient care. Students will learn to obtain patient vital signs, assist with minor medical procedures, perform simple laboratory tests, give injections, perform venipuncture (phlebotomy), administer medications, and more.

Students will need to have access to the internet, PC, laptop, or tablet, and access to a printer in order to participate. This program includes a 160-hour externship where students will be placed in a private practice, clinic, or urgent care facility.

Must be 18+ years. A high school diploma or GED is required for NHA certification.
