About Course

The first step towards becoming a CMA lies in obtaining the proper Medical Assistant training and education. E.D.P School’s Certified Medical Assistant program is designed to provide students with the essential skills needed for a CMA, including how to handle procedures such as venipuncture and EKGs while also teaching them about other important areas in medical assisting, like examinations or  assisting with laboratory work. 

E.D.P. School’s Middle States accredited Medical Assistant training program in Brooklyn, NY will teach students the essential skills necessary to administer many of the clinical and administrative requirements typically performed within any medical facility. They will be able to carry out tasks such as as obtaining an individual’s vital signs, collecting medical specimens, withdrawing blood, and administering injections.

Upon course completion, our students will also be trained to assist in administrative skills and functions.

Medical Assistants can eventually choose to go on to become certified in many specialized areas with additional schooling and education. While our program focuses on teaching well-rounded baseline medical skills, such as performing venipunctures, conducting EKGs, assisting during medical examinations, laboratory technician skills, and administrative duties, a Certified Medical Assistant can elect to further specialize in additional medical categories.

This course has been approved by the New York State Education Department and accredited by the Middle States Association of America.


Job Outlook

Medical Assistant jobs are on the rise. Employment of Medical Assistants is projected to grow 19 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients. Medical Assistant jobs are on the rise. 

An increasing number of group practices, clinics, and other healthcare facilities will also need support workers, particularly medical assistants, to complete both administrative and clinical duties. Medical Assistants work mostly in primary care, a steadily growing sector of the healthcare industry.
