Stark State College medical assisting program now on the fast track

(North Canton, OH – Nov. 4, 2021) – Stark State College’s medical assisting program is changing to become an even faster way to an in-demand career.

Now, students can finish the certificate in just three semesters, becoming eligible to take the certified medical assistant – CMA(AAMA) – exam as well as the national exam to become a certified EKG technician.

All classes are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each semester, with day or night programs available. Classes are eight or 10 weeks long. Cohorts begin in the fall on main campus and in spring at Stark State Akron. Students are assigned to clinical sites for training.

It’s an occupation growing faster than average, because medical assistants are cross-trained to perform administrative and clinical duties as they work alongside physicians.
