As health care expands in the coming decade, Medical Assisting is expected to be one of the fastest-growing health care professions. You can become a part of this team 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.
Graduates of the program at SLCC are prepared to sit for and 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). They are of immediate value to the physician/provider, specialty clinics, urgent care facilities, hospitals and multi-specialty health maintenance facilities.
