According to the U.S. Department of Labor, we’re in the midst of great growth with medical assistant jobs—they estimate a 23 percent increase between 2014 and 2024. And considering the coming changes in health care and all the clinical skills that medical assistants have, I think that estimate might be low!
Cybertex is positioned to get students into medical assistant careers faster than other schools in the Austin area. With 740 classroom hours, at 20 hours a week, students can enroll in our medical assistant program and come out certified in just nine months’ time! And we teach everything, from phlebotomy to anatomy and physiology to the finer points of medical office work—all the skills that make certified medical assistants so knowledgeable and employable.
Because our classes move at this pace, our students can get into the job market more quickly than students who opt for 11, 14 or 16-month programs. What’s more, our students learn to think on their feet and react quickly, ideal for students who want to work in emergency rooms, hospitals, or other medical office settings requiring fast response times. As I like to say, our students are used to having to learn quick, and having to know what they learned. It’s not easy, but the work our students put in definitely pay off at the end.
Today’s medical recruiters are looking for medical assistants who can do everything well, and Cybertex is built to prepare students for that search. If you’re interested in a fast track to a medical career, the medical assistant program at Cybertex could be the program for you. Check in with our admissions team to get started, and I could be seeing you in one of my classes soon!
