Medica Assistant

Students graduate from Briya’s 12-15 month program prepared for careers as Registered Medical Assistants, who work alongside doctors and nurses in medical offices, clinics, and hospitals. Throughout Briya’s course, students gain hands-on practice with clinical lab skills such as drawing blood, giving injections, and taking blood pressure. They also gain proficiency in administrative skills, including updating patient records and coding insurance forms. Briya offers the MA program in collaboration with our longtime partner, Mary’s Center, thereby providing students with embedded learning opportunities with Mary’s Center nursing and medical assistant staff. Students also complete a 160-hour externship in a local clinic, hospital or doctor’s office. The course concludes with test-prep sessions that equip students to pass the nationally recognized Registered Medical Assistant exam. Classes are 20 hours a week for 12-15 months. Day and night classes are offered.
