Medical Assistant


Everest's Medical Assistant career training program is designed to have you prepared to work as a professional medical assistant in a doctor's office, clinic or similar health care venue in less than one year.

To achieve this ambitious goal, Everest offers a course curriculum that is tightly focused on the subjects most relevant to the job you're preparing to perform. As a student in Everest's Medical Assistant program, you'll have an opportunity to study:

  • Patient care and communication
  • Clinical assisting and pharmacology
  • Medical insurance, bookkeeping and health sciences
  • Cardiopulmonary procedures
  • Laboratory procedures
  • Endocrinology and reproduction
  • Therapeutic care

After completing your required Medical Assistant courses, you'll then participate in a 200-hour externship in an actual physician's office.

Please Note: This Medical Assistant program course description is not necessarily reflective of every Medical Assistant program offered across all Everest campuses. This is a summary of general topics learned within most schools. Please check your specific campus catalog for details about the Medical Assistant courses taught at your local campus.

Your courses will be taught in both a traditional classroom setting and in a laboratory where you'll get hands-on training with real tools of the trade. Your instructors will be experienced health care professionals. Much of your work will be done in small groups, so you'll get to share with -- and get help from -- your fellow students. Upon graduation, you can get further support from Everest's Career Services staff, which can provide valuable help in your transition from school into the workplace.*
