The Accelerated Medical Assisting program provides a new path to a career as a Certified Medical Assistant. Modeled after Cabrillo’s Nursing, Radiological Technology, and Dental Hygiene programs, all students will take the same block of classes and move through the program together as one cohort. The courses provide a strong foundation in the essential skills employers have told us are needed to succeed in this career.

The first semester includes courses that develop the necessary math and writing skills as they are used in this profession. Each semester builds on the skills and knowledge developed in the previous one, so that by the end students are positioned for success.

This program is full time, Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 3:30. It is designed to result in a Medical Assisting Certificate of Achievement including completion of externship hours within 3 semesters. Students may also complete an Associate in Science degree.
