Medical Assistant Externship

Get additional hands-on training and gain real-world clinical experience working with patients and a medical office team. You will complete 160 hours of supervised, unpaid work in a healthcare facility supervised and mentored by experienced medical professionals. The externship reinforces classroom and clinical knowledge in preparation for entering the workforce. You will need to have updated immunizations and a physical to complete this experience. Enrollment in the externship is automatic after you successfully complete your UNLV's Medical Assistant Program coursework; there is no additional tuition for this portion of the program. Actual program dates may vary based on completion of required externship paperwork and clinical site schedules. Starting Fall 2021, the externship is now a required step toward earning your UNLV Medical Assistant Certificate.
