Med-Assist School of Hawaii has been teaching medical assistants since 1974. We have developed a close knit bond within the medical community in Hawaii. We have an amazing externship program where, in the last five weeks of the program, we place our students in doctor’s offices or clinics so that they can have hands on experience in the medical field and reinforce everything they learn at school. Over the years, our externship program has grown to include over 150 approved externship sites! They include small private family practices, all the major hospitals and clinics across Oahu, and all specialty areas. Chances are, if you have gone to the doctor’s this year, you have met our super friendly graduates working in the field!
We realize you are eager to start a new career. It is easy to get frustrated with a two or four year college program and it can seem that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. That is why we have established a streamlined curriculum. We at Med-Assist School of Hawaii, teach our students the life skills that they need to succeed in the health care industry. This is a great time to join the medical profession! According to the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Medical assisting is projected to be one of the fastest growing occupations over the 2004-2014 period”.
