SOCHi chose to partner with Pearson, a trusted provider of educational tools for many decades, as its source for the development and delivery of a comprehensive Medical Assistant Program that meets the needs of the local community in preparation for the workforce. Additionally, feedback from medical professionals and experienced medical assistant instructors was solicited and used to create the ideal learning experience for the student. The Medical Assistant program is designed with a combination of informational and practical learning experiences to prepare students with the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies required for a career as a Medical Assistant in a variety of clinical settings. Hands-on lab activities and experiential learning through externship give the student confidence to be successful upon entering the workforce. SOCHi reviewed the job outlook for Medical Assistants by using the onetonline.org to find that the prospect of job growth is faster than average, with an expected growth of 14% or higher through the year 2024.
