AAS in Medical Assisting Fox College
Fox College Medical Assisting graduates receive hands-on training in simulated medical laboratory classrooms. Each lab is equipped with the same types of medical equipment used in physicians' offices. You will spend most of your time taking classes that are directly related to a medical assisting career, enabling you to complete the program in as little as 10-12 months.
As part of the program, you will spend 8 weeks in an externship. Designed to let students practice what they've learned, you can make valuable industry contacts. Many students are hired directly by their externship employers! The Medical Assisting program is currently accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (abhes.org). Graduates of the Medical Assisting program are eligible to take the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) exam that is offered by the American Association of Medical Assistants and the Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) examination offered by American Medical Technologists (AMT).
