Take the First Step Toward Your Health Care Career Now!
Since South College was founded in 1882, we have focused on serving students who want hands-on, career-driven education that will have a meaningful impact on their lives and livelihoods.
More than a century ago, fulfilling that mission meant supplying on-campus offices so students could conduct business in the mercantile and banking industries while getting an education.
Today, it means offering accelerated, hybrid, transfer, and distance learning programs. It means small class sizes, state-of-the-art labs, and campuses that are convenient to large numbers of students. Most of all, it means experienced professors who provide real world examples and lead in-depth discussions.
As part of this online two-year certificate and degree program, you will learn medical billing and coding, patient care management, and taking patient medical histories. You’ll receive the educational instruction you need alongside practical training that will help to make you more competitive in a rapidly growing job market.
Our unique 1 + 1 program allows students who complete the 9-month certificate program to continue for an additional 3-4 quarters to complete the general education requirements and earn an Associate degree in Medical Assisting.
