Apply Your New Skills at Your Externship
What better way to learn than by doing something? The professional medical assistant program at Branford Hall requires that each student complete an externship. During the externship, you are placed in a real medical setting where you can apply your new skills. This gives you on-the-job training and builds your resume before you have even completed your training. This is one more way that Branford Hall students come prepared to their first job.
Professional Medical Assistant Program and Certification
At Branford Hall, the Career Placement Services department encourages all students who have performed successfully in our courses to take a certification examination.
While medical assistants are not required to be certified, employers often prefer to hire certified assistants. Certification demonstrates your commitment to your new career, and may provide you with better career opportunities, better pay, and more job security.
Students who successfully complete our professional medical assistant program at our Springfield campus are eligible to take the following nationally-recognized certification exams:
While the programs at Branford Hall help students to prepare for these exams, the decision to take the exams and the cost of the exams are the responsibility of the student.
Some certification exams are available on campus, while others must be taken at an off-site location. In addition, you may be eligible for additional certification exams not mentioned above. The instructors and Career Services representatives at your campus will share these opportunities with you as you near graduation.
