Duties of medical assistants vary from office to office depending on office location, size, and specialty.

This program is a hybrid program, meaning that students complete part of the program courses online and part of the program courses in a physical classroom. For some of the courses, the didactic or theoretical portion will be delivered primarily online and the hands-on practices will take place primarily in a physical classroom/laboratory. Hybrid programs offer students the best of all worlds: the convenience and flexibility of online classes while still enjoying the community and support of a campus setting. Online learning also gives students the opportunity to build valuable computer skills that support success in the workplace.

The physical classroom at which the student will complete on-campus coursework is located at a Fortis College or Institute with which our school has a consortium agreement.
