A barrier for many people wanting to help others in a rewarding health care career is the perception of having to spend years training and needing to move away from home to do so. They often aren’t aware of shorter-term programs that are available, such as Medical Office Assistant course training.

The reality is, many careers in health care don’t require those long-term sacrifices. That’s why Bredin College offers a Medical Office Assistant with Unit Clerk Diploma Program that takes only months to complete, is filled with practical knowledge, and can be done locally on campuses throughout Alberta.

Our program is led by medical professionals at our institutions and is accredited by Alberta Advanced Education. This means you can receive quality career training without leaving home, and finish in a fraction of the time of a degree.

Why You Should Consider Training as a Medical Office Assistant
