UNLV's Medical Assistant program provides you with real-world administrative and clinical skills that are essential to working in the modern medical office. Using an applied learning approach the curriculum will help you develop the tactile and critical thinking skills necessary for working in today's health care setting.

The program is paired with an online learning management system offering additional resources and tools and real -world simulations using electronic health record software.
