BestOnlineColleges.org is a pioneer in online educational resources for students. A remarkable shift has occurred in America’s higher education system over the last few years. While online education was once considered a niche industry, top colleges and universities are now offering online course options as a part of their curricula. This trend has coincided with the evolution of the student profile: tech-savvy, profoundly skilled at multi-tasking, and looking to combine an education with a meaningful life experience. By combining educational data with surveys and academic resources, we evaluate and rank the best places in the U.S. for online degree programs of all subjects.
Medical assistants play an integral role in hospitals and doctor’s offices. They perform tasks such as answering phones, recording medical histories, and even drawing blood. What many people might not know is that a traditional college degree is not necessary for a medical assistant certification. Anyone, whether they’re currently employed or unemployed because of any reason, can complete their online medical assistant training at home and have the opportunity to earn upwards of $40,000 a year.
With the aging baby boomer population and the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, the recent expansion of the healthcare industry will continue for years to come. Since capable medical assistants are nearly as in-demand as doctors, people in all stages of their careers are seeking to fill these job openings. Online programs are becoming increasingly popular because they allow you to get your certification on your own time and from the comfort of your home.
For this reason, BestOnlineColleges.org has compiled and analyzed data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in order to create a thorough list of the 2014 Best Online Medical Assistant Certification Schools and Training Programs. The list integrates detailed insight into the enrollment, retention, and graduation rates of each program in addition to special consideration into the breadth its specializations. There are 21 schools on this year’s list.
