Medical assistants have a wide range of responsibilities in the healthcare field. For example, you’ll assist doctors and nurses with patient care, while also scheduling patient appointments. If a career as a medical assistant sounds like a great fit for you, you’ll need some specialized training first.
The studies you’ll need to complete to become a medical assistant can be a challenge. You’ll need to obtain some college or university training to learn how to give injections, prepare patients for exams and chart vitals among other things. You’ll also need to study technical material such as human anatomy and medical terminology.
At Cambridge, our Medical Assistant program offers a variety of additional courses, including:
- Health Core and Body Systems
- Clinical Procedures
All of this training is critical to receive the knowledge you need to do well in your new medical career. And although it can get complex at times, you can come out on top. Many students complete our Medical Assistant program each year. You can too!
