Become a Professional Medical Assistant

Your community needs you.

Train to become a professional Medical Assistant to improve patient care and support your community.

Start your medical assistant career in direct patient-care

There is a growing need in our communities for medical care. The need ranges from acute care for chronic illnesses, to preventative care for diseases such as type 2 diabetes, to elder care.

The health issues in our communities range from elders who rarely visit a doctor’s office to people who visit regularly due to chronic illnesses and increasing rates of preventable type 2 diabetes. When you become a medical assistant, you strengthen the healthcare fabric of your community. Kino College gives you the professional skills to provide exceptional patient care, respond to medical situations, assist in clinical patient care duties, and calm concerns of the patient’s family.

At Kino College, students train to become professional Medical Assistants who work with doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners in cardiology, OB/GYN, pediatrics, and a variety of other specialty practices.
