Medical Assistant Program and Phlebotomist training at Arizona College in Mesa, Arizona.

Medical Assistant Program

Our Medical Assistant program with Phlebotomy training is a dual-skill building 30-week program with flexible class start dates. The medical assistant program is divided into 3 academic quarters. After the on-campus portion of the program, each student completes an off-campus 5-week clinical externship. Including this externship, the entire program can be completed in under 7 months.

  • Arizona Medical Assistants are not required to have certification in order to work in the field. However, graduates of our program are recommended to become certified as either a Registered or Certified Medical Assistant or Phlebotomy Technician to enhance their resume and knowledge in the field.

Dental Assistant Program

Arizona College’s dental assistant program takes a total of four quarters (38 weeks) to complete. After completing the on-campus portion of the program, you’ll participate in an off-campus, eight-week clinical externship that provides you with real-world, hands-on experience in a dental practice setting. Not only will you be prepared for success through interactive learning, but two of the component exams necessary for certification, Radiation Health and Safety (RHS) and Infection Control (ICE), can be completed during the program.

  • Arizona Dental Assistants enjoy a balance of connecting with people through patient care, taking x-rays, maintaining patient records, and scheduling appointments.
