A new career can help your self image, confidence and provide a better future for you and your family.


Medical Assistants and Administrative Medical Assistants are placed in local doctor offices, clinics, and private billing services during the extern portion of their program.
Practical experience and a good recommendation help to find the perfect job for our graduates. That is, if the site doesn’t hire students right after their externship.

Our Extern and Placement Coordinator works with local employers to arrange externship opportunities for the both administration and clinical medical assistant students. Students will extern 160 hours in a medical setting under the direct supervision of the facility administrator and general supervision of the ATA's Director of Education. Students will receive hands-on application of their recently acquired medical skills and will develop the confidence to secure a career position.

The externship is beneficial for both the student, gaining necessary hands-on training, and the medical facility, gaining increased productivity through the students' assistance.

Benefits to Medical Facility
