Medical Assisting Program Information and Overview

Considering a career in a health care field?  SCC's Medical Assisting Program is a great place to start.  Here at SCC you can learn about many aspects of health care services. Medical assistants work great hours, potentially those hours could be in a doctor's office type setting where you would perform administrative office procedures, as well as basic clinical and laboratory tasks that help keep the office running efficiently. Medical assistants regularly interact with medical staff and patients and manage various tasks simultaneously.

Students in SCC's Medical Assisting Program receive hands-on experience in a lab setting and complete clinical rotations in
local physicians' offices. Many graduates have become employed within three months of completing the program.

Program Goal - Expectations: To prepare competent entry-level medical assistants in the cognitive(knowledge), psychomotor (skills) and affective areas.
