Currently medical assisting is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States with an expected increase in potential jobs by as much as 23% through 2028 (US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Sept. 4, 2019). Options for individuals seeking medical services and treatment: urgent care, surgicare and ambulatory care centers, as well as health maintenance organizations (HMO’s), multi-physician group practices and medical specialty clinics have opened new career opportunities.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
Certification is optional for students once they have completed the program. Graduates may practice without certification at this time.
