The Medical Assistant program at Madison College is designed to teach you to do the work of a physician's office employee, from general office procedures to elementary medical laboratory techniques and helping in the exam room. Training includes placement in a local office/clinic during the final semester.
If you have a genuine interest in medicine and in helping people, this could be a great fit for you.
Please note that after acceptance to this program, you will be required to complete a background check and provide documentation of current required-immunizations and current Healthcare Provider CPR certification. More information about these requirements will be provided at program orientation.
Wisconsin law requires background checks for persons who provide care for others or have access to people who receive care. This law applies to students in many School of Health Education programs. Please review the Caregiver Background Check information on the School of Health Education Forms and Policies.
Medical Assistant students can attend full or part time.
