Statement of Educational Outcomes for the FT Medical Assisting Program 2020

In compliance with the Medical Assisting Education Review Board*, MAERB, policy 210, 2015 Standards, all accredited medical assisting programs are required to publish a single percentage outcome from the 2019 Annual Report Form.  The outcomes are to be published at a location that is accessible to prospective and current students, graduates and the public. After the evaluation of the current ARF, MAERB will choose the specific the outcomes with the year designated for publication.

Based on Forsyth Tech’s Medical Assisting program annual report form of 2019, the following cohort groups and areas of review have been designated and chosen for MAERB for outcome results:

  • Job Placement – post the percentage from the 2018 graduate year. The outcome result is 100%.
  • Exam Passage – post the percentage from the 2017 graduate. The outcome result is 100%.

The faculty, staff and administrators are dedicated to the success of the students and medical assisting program.  From the five-year ARF analysis, all outcomes are found within the expected range.  The faculty goal is to assist each candidate in a student-centered classroom for a patient-centered career.

Respectfully submitted,
