Medical Assisting

Employment of medical assistants is expected to grow much faster than average for all occupations through the year 2016, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment options include work as an administrative medical assistant or office manager, clinical medical assistant, phlebotomy technician, medical laboratory assistant or medical coder. 

Clinical medical assistants perform basic lab tests and electrocardiography, administer medications and assist physicians with medical procedures. Administrative medical assistants perform such business-related tasks as billing, scheduling, completing insurance claims and medical coding.

Graduates are eligible to sit for certification examinations given by the American Association of Medical Assistants or by the American Medical Technologists. This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs and the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB).

Anne Arundel Community College's Medical Assisting program offers several professional options in the health care field. Students may choose from an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, certificate, letter of recognition or entry-level courses that lead to a career in the health professions.
