Mission & Goals


Center for Allied Health Education's Medical Assistant Program has made a firm commitment to the education of students in the field of medical assisting. Our mission is the training of Medical Assistants who are skilled individuals, qualified by technical education, to provide medical assisting services.


Center for Allied Health Education offers a program of Medical Assistant at the certificate level. To graduate, students must have:

  • Completed all didactic objectives including: passing all courses by achieving a minimum passing grade.

The program identifies benchmarks to provide a standard by which the effectiveness of the program in achieving its goals can be evaluated. An assessment/effectiveness plan is in place and can be obtained from the program director.

Upon graduation, students will receive a certificate of completion and are prepared to meet the requirements to sit for the certifying board examination published by the American Association of Medical Assistants and to function as entry-level Medical Assistants. Specifically, our objectives are to have our graduates perform effectively by:

  • Applying knowledge of safety for patients, self, and others
