Institutionally accredited by The Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), Ameritech’s Medical Assisting program prepares students with foundational instruction in medical language, anatomy and physiology, and patient-centered communication and education.

In classes and labs at our Draper campus, Medical Assisting students receive theoretical and practical training. Our state-of-the-art facility includes two skill labs where students train to become Medical Assistants, practicing procedures on real humans, not dummies, before they begin their externship.

All graduates leave prepared to work in clinical and administrative areas, including: obtaining vital signs and medical histories, collection and processing of lab specimens, pharmacology and medication administration, phlebotomy, electrocardiography, medical asepsis, assisting with surgical procedures, HIPAA regulations, use of EHR/EMR, medical insurance coding (CPT, ICD-9/ICD-10) and claims, and a variety of related topics.

Entry Requirements

  • Prospective Medical Assistant students must complete and receive an acceptable score of 13 or higher on the Wonderlic SLE exam. This exam is administered at no cost to the applicant. Test scores proctored at institutions other than Ameritech are not acceptable. Prospective students who do not achieve an acceptable score on their first attempt may retake another version of the exam. If a prospective student does not achieve an acceptable score on the second exam, administration will allow a third test after five business days. A prospective student may test a maximum of three times in a three-month period. Passing exam scores are valid for one year from the date administered. 
  • Applicants who have taken the ACT exam within 24 months of enrollment may waive the Wonderlic SLE exam requirements provided minimum ACT composite scores have been met relative to their program of enrollment; see the campus admissions department for specific ACT composite score requirements.

About Ameritech College of Healthcare, United States

Ameritech College of Healthcare was founded in 1979 in Provo Utah.  As an accredited vocational college specializing in healthcare career training, the original vision was to provide students with career advancement into the healthcare field in the shortest time possible.  As jobs in healthcare continue to grow, Ameritech is preparing graduates to meet this demand.

While Ameritech College of Healthcare has grown substantially since 1979, the college has remained true to its mission.  Over the past several decades, thousands of graduates have chosen Ameritech to assist them with their career transition into a variety of healthcare and dental related fields.

In 2006 Ameritech expanded its allied health and dental offerings by adding a registered nursing program. Nursing students from inside and outside the State of Utah began to see the value of the Ameritech’s Nursing Program, and the number of graduated registered nurses now numbers in the thousands. Ameritech College of Healthcare has since grown to be one of the largest and highest-performing nursing colleges in Utah.

Past graduates have come to Ameritech from across the United States and even internationally.  With the expansion into online healthcare programs in 2009, Ameritech College of Healthcare now offers an advanced degree option for registered nurses who wish to pursue their Bachelor of Science in Nursing online.

Ameritech College of Healthcare implements its mission guided by five dynamic and integrated core values that are embedded into the institution, dictate behavior, and are reflected in our work.
