Medical Assisting

The Medical Assisting Program at Wallace Community College has a two-fold purpose.  The program seeks to ensure students have opportunities to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for the practice of medical assisting and also prepare them to successfully write the American Association of Medical Assistant Certifying Board examination and become a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA).  Completion of the Medical Assisting curriculum earns one an associate in applied science degree.  The Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), 1361 Park Street, Clearwater, Florida 33756, (727-210-2350),, on recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB).  Accreditation status was reaffirmed in February of 2005 and continues through the fall of 2014.  Students enrolled in the Medical Assisting Program at WCC may also focus on short certificate options in the fields of medical transcription and phlebotomy.  Completers of the phlebotomy certificate are eligible to sit for the Phlebotomy Technician (ASCP) and Registered Phlebotomy Technician (AMT) certification examinations.
