Medical Assistants are in High Demand

Employment is expected to grow much faster than average, with excellent job opportunities. Students in the Medical Assistant program learn high demand skills that encourage employers to hire them for entry-level positions in doctors’ offices, urgent care settings and community health centers.

A New Career in Seven Months

Graduates can begin Medical Assisting careers following short-term training. Students who attend the full-time program five days a week complete in seven months; those attending three nights a week complete in fifteen months.

Small Classes Provide More Personal Attention

Classes of only 15-18 students enable Instructors to support individual learning needs. MTTI students practice hands-on skills on actual volunteers in our clinical lab setting. You’ll become a well-rounded clinical and administrative Medical Assistant, with the background to pursue many career paths.

Certification

Graduates are eligible* to sit for the Registered Medical Assistant Examination & the Registered Phlebotomy Technician Examination offered by the American Medical Technologists (AMT). The RMA is a highly respected (voluntary) credential, recognized by medical practices throughout the United States. Plus earn additional certificates in EKG (electrocardiography), Electronic Health Records and HIPAA–all as part of your program. 

“Job Shadowing” and Internship

The 160-hour Medical Assistant Internship helps students transition from the classroom into the workforce. Students get real life experience, and earn a positive reference for future employment. Students may also receive an offer of employment at the internship site.

Students “shadow” (observe) medical professionals twice during their program to prepare for internships. Sites include physician’s offices, group practices, hospitals and urgent care settings.

Each student receives a Littmann Stethoscope upon documenting training-related employment within 90 days after graduating.  The Tool Bonus Policy is outlined in the Student Orientation Booklet.  Please see an Admissions Representative for complete details on this tool policy.
