Build a Rewarding Career as a Medical Assistant

If you’re looking for a career where you can make a difference, consider Central Penn’s new Medical Assisting Diploma Program.

Medical assistants are one of the unsung heroes of the healthcare profession. They are talented, versatile healthcare professionals who perform both clinical and administrative duties. They are often one of the first healthcare workers patients see and interact with when they visit a physician’s office.

Jobs in Medical Assisting are expected to grow 19% through 2029, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Factors fueling this job growth include:

  • The predicted surge in the number of physicians’ offices and outpatient care facilities
  • Technological advancements
  • A growing number of elderly Americans who need medical treatment

Medical Assisting Diploma courses are exclusively offered in-person during the day at Central Penn College’s Lancaster Center.
