Associate of Science Degree in Medical Assisting

The Associate of Science Degree in Medical Assisting is designed to bridge the gap between the traditional nurse in the physician's office and the medical secretary. This associate degree prepares graduates for a position in the medical office in a clinical capacity. In addition to clinical and basic laboratory procedures, students learn current medical technology, medical codes, and other skills necessary to excel in the healthcare industry. Upon completion of an Associate Degree in Medical Assisting, students will have taken a variety of courses related to the healthcare field. Courses include Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmacology, Phlebotomy, and other Medical Lab classes. To ensure a well-rounded medical assistant, the Medical Assisting associate degree covers medical insurance and coding, medical transcription, and medical bookkeeping as it relates to the medical office.

Graduates of our Medical Assisting Program also qualify to sit for a number of national certifications. Most Medical Assisting graduates sit for the Certified Medical Assistant examination. Our Medical Assistants also qualify to sit for the Phlebotomy Technician and Electrocardiograph (EKG) Technician certifications. All of these tests are given quarterly to Gwinnett College graduates on our campus. Our students take the test online and results of the certification are immediate.
