FAYETTEVILLE, August 13, 2010 (Press-News.org) The position of medical assistant is among the fastest-growing occupations in the United States, expected to grow by 20 percent in the next 10 years. To sustain this increasing need, Blue Cliff College now offers a Diploma in Medical Assisting partially online. Blue Cliff College's Diploma in Medical Assisting prepares students for positions in the growing healthcare industry, where graduates work as medical assistants in doctor's offices, hospitals or clinics.

For the past six years, online enrollments have been growing faster than traditional higher-education students. In fact, according to the Sloan Consortium, over 4.6 million students were taking at least one online course during the fall 2008 term; a 17 percent increase over the number reported the previous year.
"We are delighted to welcome the students of Blue Cliff College to the future of education, as we commence online coursework within our Medical Assisting Diploma Program," said Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Tim Dosemagen. "The learning experiences our students will enjoy will be an interesting, transformational, richly rewarding voyage of life changing guided discoveries - a very special journey they not soon forget."

In 2009, the Department of Education did a meta-analysis and review of online learning in the United States, and found that students who took all or part of their class online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional face-to-face instruction. Self-directed learning with 24/7 accessibility gives students an opportunity to manage their schedules and learning tools more appropriately, opening up broader education options.

Dr. Dosemagen has over a decade of experience in the education industry; include six years of instructing online. "There is a tremendous bonus to learning online. Our students are mastering the very latest tools and methods used throughout today's evolving global workplaces. They are gaining skills in 21st Century communication and collaboration, where 'real-time' crosses distances and time zones. They are at the nexus of modernity and marketability, in the Information Age."
Students in the Medical Assisting program study the medical science of the human body, including clinical techniques such as examining room procedures, medical lab procedures, pharmacology, and administrative procedures. Medical assistants are responsible for performing routine administrative and clinical tasks that are vital to the efficient operation of a doctor's office or hospital. Students can receive their diploma in as little as 12 months.
