Medical Assistant

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.

Program Accreditation
The Medical Assistant Program at SLCC is accredited nationally by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) and CAAHEP. Only graduates from a program accredited by these two accrediting bodies can sit for the Certified Medical Assistant Exam given by the AAMA three times a year.

While not all employers require this certification, large facilities such as the UUHCN and IHC have certification built into their pay scales and often require it for employment.
