A fast-growing field full of new opportunities!

At IBMC College, you can train in as little as 15-19 months* and feel good about what you do.

The field of healthcare is growing and constantly evolving. To keep up with these changes and deliver care to patients as efficiently as possible, many employers rely on the support of medical assistants. Through a blended curriculum of lecture, labs, and a clinical externship placement, you will develop the knowledge and skills you need to assist those doctors and nurses as they care for patients in non-critical care settings.

When you enter our Medical Assisting training program, you will spend most of your time taking classes that directly pertain to the medical assisting career, enabling you to complete the program quickly. Through hands-on training, you will work side-by-side with devoted instructors, who will teach you how to perform a wide variety of tasks, such as:

• Injections
• Vital sign measurements
• Phlebotomy
• Preparation of lab specimens
• Equipment sterilization
• EKGs and radiography
• Dressing changes and suture removal
• Administrative and front office skills

During the last five weeks of your coursework, you will complete an externship in a physician’s office, clinic, or healthcare facility. Upon graduation, career placement assistance is provided to you.
