Of all the Allied Health programs offered through Everest, Medical Assistant is one of the most popular. In fact, Everest trains and graduates more Medical Assistants than any other educational institution in the US.
Medical Assistants are vital in the day-to-day operations of medical practices, doctor's offices and other healthcare facilities. Physicians count on Medical Assistants to greet patients, prepare patients for exams and, in many cases, perform routine clinical tasks like taking patient history, collecting vital signs, blood pressure, height and weight, temperature, and more. In addition, they also often help with the administrative tasks of running an office: Answering phones, making appointments, computer and paperwork.
Our Medical Assistant program provides students with practical hands-on training and education in pharmacology, laboratory procedures, medical law, patient care, and the health sciences, which makes them capable of filling a diverse range of duties in the healthcare industry.
