Online Medical Assistant Schools


Many of the courses in a typical Medical Assisting program can be taken online. According to a recent study done for the US Department of Education, students who do part or all of their coursework online perform slightly better than students who do all their work in a face to face classroom setting.

Below is a list of the schools we were able to find that offer Medical Assisting programs either completely online, or very close to it (minimal visits to campus required). When you talk to the schools, you should make sure to check whether you will be required to come to campus at all, and if so, how often.
