What is a Medical Assistant?
The Medical Assistant (MA) is the most versatile and desirable medical assistance position. Consequently, job opportunities for the MA abound as the health care industry rapidly expands to meet demand among the aging Baby Boomer population. Because the DBU School of Health Science MA program is so successful and well-respected, DBU graduates are often sought after in the Northland. A career as a Medical Assistant also offers benefits like the ability to work a stable daytime schedule rather than shift-work, and the certification is recognized in all fifty states, should you decide to relocate. The Medical Assistant program is also a good fit for ex-military personnel with basic medical training who want to build on what they learned and turn it into another worthwhile and fulfilling career.
