Comprehensive Medical AssistingStart your new career in as little as 10 months
Comprehensive Medical Assisting Program
Medical Assisting students are trained in forty weeks, or approximately ten months at our medical assisting school in Louisville or Lexington, KY. In our medical assistant classes about 70% of the training our students receive is hands-on. Our students are trained to work in both the front office as well as in the clinic. This medical assistant training is then refined during Externship where students work alongside doctors, assistants, and other staff members.
Our students don’t have to spend extra time or money on prerequisite classes, such as English, Math, or History. They are learning the latest in medical protocols and technology focusing on what they need to know to be successful in their careers. Some of the administrative duties they are taught include: Obtaining patient history, arranging for hospital admissions and laboratory services, performing basic laboratory tests, taking electrocardiograms, and removing sutures and changing dressings.
Prior to graduating from our medical assistant program, each student works one-on-one with the Director of Career Servies to build a professional resume, practice interviewing skills and prepare for the real life working environment. Even after graduation, MedQuest will continue to provide our Alumni with the same benefits even if it has been 10 years since the student received their diploma!
MedQuest College remains steadfast in our dedication to keeping our students informed. For a complete list of Disclosures, please click here.

I would recommend MedQuest to everyone I know
I leave every day having learned something new. Every day we do something hands-on and the teachers are wonderful. Our small class sizes help to grasp the concepts better. The available technology and resources really help you to understand the dental office better. I have absolutely no complaints about this school.

I love the school. I would recommend to everyone that likes small classes and really good teachers. I have learned a lot, and by the end of my classes, I will be prepared for a good job at a dental office. It is all because I was well-prepared by the instructors. It has everything you need to learn.
