Another important part of the medical assisting curriculum is the one-one-one interaction students receive from experienced instructors, devoted to making a difference. Instructors give crucial feedback and work directly with students to ensure that each task is being performed correctly. They also share valuable medical industry trends and often times, invite healthcare professionals to provide a guest lecture.

CPR and First Aid Certification for infants, children and adults, recognition as a Nationally Registered Medical Assistant and Automated External Defibrillator training are major components of the Medical Assisting Degree Program.
