Medical Assistant (MA)
The Medical Assistant program at Cabarrus College prepares students to support medical providers by performing a variety of administrative tasks such as taking medical histories and managing medical records. Medical Assistants are also qualified to perform basic clinical duties such as taking vital signs, starting IVs, and performing venipuncture.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Medical Assistant jobs are expected to have one of the highest rates of growth over the next 10 years.
