MEDICAL ASSISTING
Certificate - 1 year
The Medical Assisting program prepares students to work in outpatient or ambulatory care settings, such as medical offices and clinics.
Medical Assisting is a growing field since the discipline requires cross-training in the performance of administrative and clinical duties.
During this program, students will be prepared to perform such tasks as taking patient histories, preparing patients for examination,
phlebotomy, injections, coding and billing, medical insurance, and front end reception work, to name a few. Upon completion of the
program, students will be eligible to write for a national examination.
Requirements Prior to Entering the Program:
English
o ACT score of 18 or higher or:
o Accuplacer score = ENG 101 or ENG 105 or higher placement
Math
o ACT score of 16 or higher or:
o Accuplacer score = MTH 103 or higher placement or:
o Completion of MTH 100 with C or higher
Keyboarding Skills: 25 words per minute
Other Requirements:
Medical assisting students are required to achieve a grade of “75% (C)” or higher in medical assistant course work to remain
in the program.
Prior to CMA 105 Practicum, the student is to successfully complete all requirements of the clinical site for student practicum.
This may include: physical examination, rubella titer, rubeola titer, varicella titer, drug screening, etc. Students will be
responsible for the cost associated with any of these clinical site requirements. Clinical sites require criminal background
checks. Applicants need to be aware that any history of misdemeanor and/or felony conviction or past abuse may make
them ineligible to meet practicum requirements and therefore not be able to complete the certificate program.
GCC reserves the right to revise these requirements as needed. Please consult the Allied Health Programs Coordinator at extension
224 or via email at Deba@gogebic.edu for updated materials on program requirements.
