Programs

Health Training Center Medical Assistant Training
Health Training Center offers a variety of allied healthcare programs to accommodate many of the needs of non-traditional students. Learn more about each of our programs below.



Medical Assistant Certificate

Health Training Center Medical Assistant Certificate
Students are instructed on the clinical skills needed to work in medical doctors’ offices, HMOs, clinics and at hospitals with in-patient and exam rooms. Our Medical Assisting program is focused entirely on the clinical technical requirements and requires four classes. Our students are given the opportunity to become proficient in Phlebotomy, EKG, and clinical medical assisting techniques. The U.S. Department of Labor (www.bls.gov) reports that Medical Assisting employment is expected to grow by 29% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will stem from physicians hiring more medical assistants to do routine administrative and clinical duties so that physicians can see more patients. Upon completion of the classroom academics, a 160 hour externship will be provided in a medical facility.
