Medical Assistants are multi-skilled health professionals specifically educated to work in ambulatory settings performing administrative and clinical duties. The practice of medical assisting directly influences the public's health and well-being, and requires mastery of a complex body of knowledge and specialized skills requiring both formal education and practical experience that serve as standards for entry into the profession.
The Medical Assisting program is a selective program (varies by campus). When you apply to the college, you will be accepted into the undeclared program while you complete the prerequisite requirements. The Medical Assisting program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process. Contact your campus of interest below for more details.
The Medical Assisting Associate of Applied Science and/or Medical Assisting Generalist Technical Certificate for Ivy Tech Community College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB)
NOTE: The number of credits required for a degree or certificate is based on students who are program-ready and does not include College Prep courses. Availability of degrees and certificates varies by campus.
