Medical assistants perform clinical and clerical tasks that keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors and optometrists running smoothly. 

Depending on the size of the practice and state regulations, medical assistants may focus on clinical tasks such as taking medical histories and vital signs, assisting during examinations or procedures, and collecting or preparing laboratory specimens. In other practices, medical assistants deal with the administrative end of the office by answering telephones, scheduling appointments, handling insurance forms and billing, purchasing equipment and supplies, and more.

The program offers a one-year certificate as well as associate degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Evening classes are now available.

Classes now also offered at Lorain County JVS.
