Financing Your Medical Assistant Education

One of the major factors that prevent prospective students from pursuing higher education is financing. More often than not, our desire to improve is overshadowed by the high cost of receiving an education. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, prices for undergraduate tuition, fees, room, and board at public institutions rose by 28% between 2008–09 and 2018–19. Today, getting an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution costs an average of $25,000 to $28,000.

These statistics suggest that students without an income source or those below the middle class may struggle to fund their education. The good news is that more cost-effective, and faster educational opportunities are available. Here at Montes HealthCare College, our Medical Assistant programs cost only $7,500 and can be financed to make the payment even easier to manage.

Why Become a Medical Assistant?

4-year undergraduate courses are not for everyone. Many of us prefer to jumpstart our careers quickly to build real-world work experience and make money. At MHCC, our Medical Assistant program can be completed in only six months, allowing you to dive into the work environment almost immediately.

When it comes to this career, the transition from education to employment can be fast due to the high demand for medical assistants. As the boomer generation nears retirement, the need for medical professionals is set to increase dramatically. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assistant jobs are expected to grow by as much as 19% between now and 2029. That’s a huge increase relative to other jobs within the same pay bracket.

Moreover, becoming a medical assistant can provide you with a great deal of flexibility. You may choose to work in a hospital, private clinic, surgical center, or even change locations with relative ease. This position can even branch out into other aspects of healthcare, allowing you to pursue advancement in the clinical aspects of the career, or operate from the clerical side of things.
