The Professional Medical Assistant program consists of 684 clock hours (36 weeks) of instruction and externship.  It has been designed to effectively prepare one for the rigors of the modern medical office.  The program balances the study of the major body systems with the functional duties of the medical assistant in the new medical office.  The coursework initially introduces the basic sciences and subjects in a general manner and then using constructive repetition, brings the basics to the real-life medical environment and the bedside.
