Medical Assistant

As health care continues to expand, Medical Assisting is expected to be one of the fastest-growing health care professions. You can become a part of this dynamic field in one short year by attending the nationally accredited program at Salt Lake Community College. Students work with a variety of state-of-the-art equipment including automated blood cell counters, Picillo chemistry analyzer, Wet film, CR, and DR x-ray machines, interpretive ECG machines, and Holter monitors. Our small class sizes and highly knowledgeable and experienced faculty and staff offer you a collaborative, exciting learning environment where you'll acquire the skills you need to succeed in this field.

As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared to successfully pass both the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) national certification exam administered by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA), and the Licensed Radiologic Practical Technician (LRPT) exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). You will be of immediate value and in high demand to physician/providers, specialty clinics, urgent care facilities, hospitals and multi-specialty health maintenance facilities.

For academic year 2017-2018, there will be Monthly Presentation Sessions on Allied Health and Health Professions programs.
