Earn While You Learn to Become a Medical Assistant
Career Accelerator Program
Oak Point University and our healthcare partners are investing in you and your community with our Career Accelerator Program (CAP). This unique program provides a fast track to educate, certify, and employ medical assistants while you earn an income and get benefits.
Our CAP takes some of the burdens of decision-making off of you. You will earn a paycheck and get benefits while you are in school. Oh, and school is free. Why? Because the healthcare industry needs people like you. The Baby Boomers are retiring, and others are getting promoted. And as the Boomers need more care in their golden years, the entire healthcare system is still stressed by COVID-19.
The best part? A job is waiting for you in a high-demand and high-growth industry!
