Why Medical Assisting?

For individuals who like to make a difference in people's lives, Medical Assisting can be a rewarding career. Medical Assistants (MAs) are essential players in medical offices, hospitals and clinics, often working closely with patients by answering questions about procedures, informing them about medications, preparing them for examinations, and having a direct influence on a patient's well-being. Becoming a medical assistant can also be a great starting position for someone who wants to gain experience in the medical field and build connections. CGCC's Medical Assisting program can be completed in nine months, offering students an excellent opportunity to quickly enter this high-demand career.
