There is a projected annual gap of about 5,439 students in the Bay region and 1,688 students in the East Bay Sub-Region.
This program will train administrative medical assistants students to enter the medical field as a medical administrative assistant, medical receptionist, medical secretary, scheduler, front office coordinator, and other medical administrative titles. No new courses have been prepared for this degree. Students who do not want to complete the clinical portion of the medical assistant program we offer currently, will be able to apply for the administrative program and take the administrative courses that are currently being offered.
