Disclaimer About Our Rankings

There is no one perfect ranking methodology to rank the best medical assisting programs and we strongly believe that rankings, including those found on our website, should not be construed as a final indicator of the value of a medical assisting program. The complexities of medical assisting education, including both the tangible and intangibles benefits, cannot be reduced to a ranking. Every medical assistant program is different, and every program has its pros and cons depending on what a student is looking for in a program. Quite often you might find that the programs that are not so highly ranked offer the best education. We advise prospective students to thoroughly do their research using multiple websites/sources before taking the final call on which program they would want to attend.
