Medical Assisting (Vocational Credit Certificate)


Upon completion of the Medical Assisting program, graduates are eligible to take the American Medical Technologies Certification exam in order to become a Registered Medical Assistant. Becoming Registered Medical Assistant is optional for the graduates of the program. It is however, highly recommended. It is required if the student is applying for Nursing Bridge Program.

Students who are interested in becoming Registered Medical Assistant may do so by requesting an application from:

American Medical Technologist
10700 West Higgins, Suite 150
Rosemont, Illinois 60018
Tel: (847) 823-5169
Tel: 800-275-1268
Fax: 847-823-0458

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
