Clinical Medical Assistant Training Program

Submitted By Boston Reed College

Boston Reed College presents the Clinical Medical Assistant Training Program from January 9 through March 7.

As a Clinical Medical Assistant you will help the physician carry out procedures, care for patients, perform simple lab tests and administer medications. The Clinical Medical Assistant works in a doctor's office or clinic. This course combines 134 hours of classroom instruction (21 of these hours online), including electrocardiography (EKG), with a 160-hour externship to provide you with a complete learning experience.

Starting pay is $15 - $22 per hour based on a national average. Students are encouraged to do their own research as to what the prevailing wage is for employers in the region.

Employment is projected to grow much faster than average, ranking medical assistants among the fastest growing occupations over the 2006-16 decade. Employment of medical assistants is expected to grow 35 percent from 2006 to 2016, much faster than the average for all occupations. Job opportunities should be excellent, particularly for those with formal training or experience, and certification. See the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook for Medical Assisting.
