Carrington College Announces New Online Medical Assisting Program

New online certificate of achievement program prepares students for a career in medical assisting
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Feb. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- Carrington College is pleased to announce a new online Medical Assisting program that prepares graduates to work in medical clinics, physicians' offices and other health care facilities. The program includes an externship while incorporating technical coursework that focuses on front-office administrative responsibilities.

Medical assistants aid doctors by performing basic clinical procedures and handling a variety of administrative duties. Most medical assistants work in physicians' offices and other health care facilities to keep operations running efficiently. Their career path can lead to employment in a variety of health care environments such as physicians' offices, outpatient facilities, as well as state, local and private hospitals.

"We are pleased to see the popular Medical Assisting program expand beyond our campuses in Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington," said Senior Director of Enrollment Services at Carrington College, Dan Simon. "Medical assistants are critical to enhancing patient-care outcomes as they work with everyone in the healthcare process — patients, doctors, and insurance companies. Since they understand every aspect, medical assistants can help explain to patients why certain tests or procedures are necessary, they can advocate for the patients with a physician, and they understand the complicated aspects of insurance," added Simon.

While most courses for the Medical Assisting certificate program ( are delivered in an online format, students are still required to complete an externship in an approved health care setting. The program culminates in a Certificate of Achievement and prepares students to take the appropriate certification and licensure exams related to their individual majors.[1] Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association Clinical Medical Assistant Certificate (CCMA) exam.
