Century College Medical Assistant Diploma Program was recently awarded Editor’s Pick among the Best Online (Hybrid) Options for 2020-21.
From front-office admissions and patient prep, to providing home care instructions and scheduling follow-up visits, medical assistants are often the first and last people patients see when going to the doctor. It’s no surprise that healthcare providers have come to rely on their MAs to keep the business running and the patients happy.
In a role this demanding, there’s nothing like an accredited formal training program to prepare for the job. We wanted to make it a little easier for future MAs to find the best programs available, so we did a deep dive to review every entry-level CAAHEP- and ABHES-accredited medical assistant program in the U.S. In the end, we identified a short list of outstanding programs we could feel good about recommending to our readers.
When we came to the Century College Medical Assistant Diploma, it was clear we had a winner.
