Medical Assistant (So Others Might Eat)

The SOME Center for Employment Training (CET) programs take 6 to 9 months to complete and lead to industry certification in healthcare. Students in the Medical Assistant program learn how to become critical members of healthcare teams in doctor’s offices and hospitals. They practice taking a patient’s vital signs, giving injections, maintaining health records and assisting doctors and nurses. After graduation, students are certified and prepared to start their new careers earning on average $18/hour. The training offered through SOME is both practical and hands-on. It includes an externship with one of the Employer Partners so that students can practice their skills in the real world. During the program, students also have access to other services, including housing and healthcare. Programs don't have sessions or semesters, meaning that new students start each week.
