Medical Assisting AAS

The two-year program in medical assisting prepares students to work in a variety of healthcare settings. Functions vary from facility to facility, but generally incorporate a mix of clinical and administrative responsibilities. Duties may include, direct patient care services, assisting with invasive and non-invasive procedures, administration of medications, medical record management, coding, billing, and office and staff management.

As a specific feature of the program, students complete extensive externships in physician offices, clinics, hospitals and related health care facilities. Throughout the externships, students are under the supervision of physician, nurse, or other healthcare professional.

Following completion of the New River Medical Assisting AAS degree, graduates may sit for the National Certification Examination for Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA). Successful completion of this examination will enable graduates to work in many states across the nation.

Graduates are qualified to accept positions in medical offices, clinics, health maintenance organizations, insurance companies, hospitals, ambulatory care centers or any other healthcare entity where their broad basic skills are applicable.

The program accepts one Medical Assisting class each year. Applications must be submitted no later than the third week of November. Fall semester enrollment in Introduction to Fundamentals of Medical Assisting (MAST 106) is essential for students applying for admission to the Medical Assisting program. Students must maintain a minimum grade of “C” in all Medical Assisting (MAST) and Medical Billing and Coding (BICO) coursework, MATH 102, BIOL 105/106, and an overall GPA of 2.0 within the institution.
