The medical assistant program at Med-Assist School in Honolulu was created in 1974 and is still running strong. This program, accredited by the ABHES, lasts for approximately 925 hours. That time is spent between learning in the classroom (625 hours), 100 hours of internship work, and 200 hours pertaining to practicum work that happens at an externship site (a clinic, physician’s office, etc).
Med-Assist promises students small class sizes and the ability to become a medical assistant in nine months.
Med-Assist also suggests that, while becoming certified through the American Medical Technologists (to be technical, the AMT registers their medical assistants, while the AAMA certifies them, but it all means the same thing), it is encouraged for anyone interested in being able to find a job on the mainland.
