How Are Students Selected for the MA Program?
If accepted, what are the additional MA program requirements?
- Please note: Entry or acceptance into the Medical Assisting program does not guarantee students a job placement, nor does it guarantee a practicum placement in Whatcom County. Practicum placements often require successful interviews and background checks. Also, due to increased competition for practicum placements in Washington State, Whatcom Community College cannot guarantee that student practicums will be in the last quarter of the Medical Assisting program classes.
