    WHY BE A MEDICAL ASSISTANT?

    The healthcare industry is growing rapidly due to the country’s aging population. At the same time, patient care delivery has experienced a major shift in recent years from inpatient to outpatient. Medical practices are expanding to meet increased demands and are expected to hire more medical assistants to handle routine administration and clinical responsibilities, freeing physicians to see more patients.

    Career Step’s Career FastTrack: Medical Assisting program is specifically designed to give you the training you need as a medical administrative assistant to transition into a career as a medical assistant. The course expands upon your healthcare experience and builds the clinical knowledge you will need to prepare to take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam after you graduate.
