Best Medical Assistant colleges in Texas 2021

It’s no secret that the medical industry is a booming field to pursue a career. With job and salary predictions expected to rise rapidly within the next 10 years, those who have a passion for healthcare will likely be in a market with a high job demand. That’s where medical assisting comes into play.

While the doctors and nurses often tend directly to a patient's needs, a medical assistant degree will give individuals the proper training in administrative and clinical tasks that would be performed as a certified medical assistant (CMA). Students will learn medical coding, anatomy and physiology, how to conduct lab tests, and everything that is needed to work directly with patients.

Medical assistants are essential to the function of any physician’s office. Luckily for most, with the right education and medical assisting program, this career can be within one’s reach in as little as two years. With this career you will interact directly with doctors, nurses, technicians, and patients. Because of this, it’s no wonder many programs offer hands-on experience through externships to learn the skills needed to properly carry out important duties.

Taking into consideration academic and clinical training, tuition cost, accreditation, student population, and the likelihood of landing a job post-graduation, we’ve broken down the top 10 colleges that any aspiring medical assistant should be begging to attend.
