The Medical Assistant program at Sanford-Brown is designed to prepare students to assist medical providers by performing administrative duties and basic clinical duties in an office and/or medical center.
The core curriculum covers a variety of subjects, including medical practice, medical law and ethics, medical communications, medical records, insurance, patient preparation, and basic laboratory procedures and tests. The courses are grouped around knowledge and skills required for administrative and clinical medical assisting; however, courses are not necessarily offered in the sequences in which they appear in the catalog. Also, students will typically, but not always, be taught by more than one instructor during their program of study.
Students are required to complete a supervised clinical externship at a medical facility that includes competencies, logs and evaluations completed by the student. At the completion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their externship, studied and practiced their skills should be ready to seek entry-level employment as medical assistants.
The Medical Assistant program at is not programmatically accredited.
Accreditation is a voluntary process which may be undertaken by schools to demonstrate compliance with specific standards designed to indicate a level of education quality. Each campus has been approved by its respective Institutional Accreditor to offer all of its currently available programs.
Broadly, across our Sanford-Brown campuses, over 60 programs are currently programmatically accredited. Some accrediting agencies require that a new program graduate its first class before the program is eligible for programmatic accreditation but we strive to run our programs according to the standards of our relevant programmatic accreditors and are committed to seeking programmatic accreditation for our eligible programs. This includes not starting the first class until the clinical site requirement is formally demonstrated, not over seating classes, ensuring the self-study process is part of the educational plan and making certain that the curriculum, facility, equipment, staff and leadership meet the programmatic accreditation requirements.
