To meet the growing needs of local healthcare employers and to make education more affordable, Bryant & Stratton College is making available its “Medical Assisting Opportunity Grant” program. The program, which can provide up to $6,000 in grants will be offered to new students who qualify and enroll for the May 2016 semester.
“This fast-growing career is creating an increase in the need for skilled workers,” said Francis J. Felser, President and CEO at Bryant & Stratton College. “We hope these grants, combined with demand for graduates, will help propel students who want to get into this rewarding and exciting career.”
Medical assistants work in physicians and other healthcare practitioners’ offices and are cross-trained to perform a mix of important clerical and medical duties, with the practice of medical assisting directly influencing the public’s health and well-being. Some of the clinical duties may include, but are not limited to:
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical assistants is expected to grow by over 138,000 jobs between 2014 and 2024.
To help speed up the transition into their career, students will also benefit from Bryant & Stratton College’s EmployableYOU® classroom-to-workplace experience. Students benefit from a strong curriculum and hands-on laboratory activities as well as assistance with writing resumes and preparing for interviews.
Upon applying for the medical assisting program, students will work with their personal admissions and financial aid representatives to apply for the grant. All courses must be completed and GPA requirements must be met for the grant to be awarded.
