Medical & Dental Programs
Much like dental assistants, medical assistants are a vital part of a medical office. They work on both clinical and administrative tasks, including:
- Taking patients vitals, such as blood pressure
- Recording a patient’s history
- Scheduling appointments
- Assisting with patient exams
Carrington College’s Medical Assisting certificate program in Citrus Heights can be completed in as few as 9 months for a certificate. Graduates of the Medical Assisting program are eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association Clinical Medical Assistant Certificate (CCMA) exam, the national certification exam to attain the Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) credential, and to sit for the national exam to attain the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) credential. Carrington College prepares students to take appropriate certification and licensure exams related to their individual majors. The College does not guarantee students will successfully pass these exams or be certified or licensed as a result of completing the program.
Blend a passion for helping others and working with the public with an exciting career as a dental assistant. Dental assistants help keep dental offices running smoothly by helping with patient care, recordkeeping, and appointment scheduling. Common tasks may include:
- Prepare patients and the work area for treatments and procedures
- Sterilize dental instruments
- Hand instruments to dentists during procedures
- Dry patients’ mouths using suction hoses and other equipment
- Work with patients on billing and payment

For those who want more patient interaction without clinical duties, working in a pharmacy may be the right career option. Pharmacy technicians help pharmacists dispense prescription medication to customers or health professionals. They may work in retail pharmacies or in healthcare facilities with in-house pharmacies. While becoming a pharmacist requires a doctoral degree, you can complete our Pharmacy Technology program in Citrus Heights in as few as 9 months.
If you’d like less patient visibility, but still want to work in healthcare, medical billing and coding could be a great option. Medical billers make sure physicians are paid by insurance providers for the services they offer. They process bills and follow up with them. Medical coders help translate medical tasks into a standardized language, or code, so they can be understood by others in the industry. Learn more about Carrington College’s Medical Billing and Coding program in Citrus Heights.
Veterinary technicians offer assistance to veterinarians and their offices. Vet techs enjoy a variety of responsibilities, including assisting veterinarians with animal care during sick visits or handling samples or labs in more research or clinical settings. It’s a rewarding career for those who love animals. Our Veterinary Technology program in Citrus Heights results in an associate degree and helps prepare students for licensure in as few as 19 months.
