The Medical Assisting program has been granted continuing accreditation for 9 years.

“Accreditation is a critical process for every academic program, for us it ensures that the education being provided to the Medical Assisting students meets a certain set of standards for quality and completeness,” said Michelle Odom, Medical Assisting program director. “This was my teams first accreditation visit, and I couldn’t be prouder of our perfect review. It is a daunting task, and we are grateful for our partners in Academic Affairs and Institutional Effectiveness.”
