Medical Assisting Program Application Forms

Prepare for a career in healthcare: Medical Assisting

The healthcare industry is expected to generate more jobs than any other career field over the next decade. As a Medical Assistant, you will work with patients in a clinical setting doing things like taking vital signs and preparing and performing EKGs. Medical Assistants also perform administrative duties like scheduling appointments and managing medical records.

LCC offers a one-year certificate and a two-year degree in Medical Assisting. Although you can start the program anytime by taking prerequisites and supportive classes, students apply for the clinical portion of the program in winter quarter (to start in the fall).

Applications to start in Fall 2023 will be accepted through August 10th, 2023. 

Applications to start in Fall 2024 will be open from February 1, 2024 through April 30, 2024.
