Give your career a 'shot in the arm'

Lets face it--no one likes getting shots, but everyone needs them. That is why becoming a Medical Assistant is a great idea! TCC's Medical Assistant Program gives students hands-on training and prepares them to enter the workforce. And, TCC is one-third of the cost of other local medical assistant schools.

After completing TCC's program, graduates are eligible to apply for and take the national certification exam administered by the American Association of Medical Assistants through the National Board of Medical Examiners. (This is important because most, if not all, employers will want a medical assistant with a Certified Medical Assistant credential.)

Medical Assistants may choose to work in clinics, hospitals, health agencies, etc. In addition to giving shots, they may perform other clinical duties such as taking vital signs, drawing blood and collecting specimens. They also perform office duties such as scheduling appointments.

TCC's program accepts a new class each August--so now is a great time to contact the division office to get information. Call 918-595-7321 or visit
