Specialty colleges are probably best for this type of career. Search online for "medical assistant" in your area and there are probably several 2 year colleges. I was interested in that and Kaplan University had a good curriculum.

Depending on the type of degree you are looking you may be able to do this at a community college or speciality college and would take approximately 2 yrs of full time enrollment to complete.

Many community colleges provide medical assistant training in less than 2 years. You will need to also sit for a certification exam. Medical assistants are in great demand. If you enjoy your job, you can always further your education and earning potential by going back to get a nursing degree. Good luck!
