'90 Day MA' Apprenticeship Program

The ‘90 Day MA’ program is a 10 month-long, full-time, paid Apprenticeship training program that prepares individuals who have little-to-no medical background to deliver safe, patient-centered care as a Medical Assistant in an outpatient care setting. Medical Assistants are trained professionals who prepare patients for exams, take medical histories, and perform basic lab tests. Medical Assistants provide a caring, comfortable, and confidential environment for their patients while also supporting the provider.

The ‘90 Day MA’ program will have 3 months of classroom instruction and 7 months of on-the-job learning, under the supervision of a preceptor (trainer), at an Intermountain Health clinic. Education topics will include anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, medication math, pharmacology, clinical skills, and administrative skills. Apprentices receive a full-time competitive salary and benefit package, including health and education benefits as an Apprentice. After successful completion of the program, the Apprentice will interview for a permanent Medical Assistant role with Intermountain Health, giving them an opportunity to provide exceptional care to our patients and community. Apprentices sit for the nationally recognized Medical Assistant examination and receive the CCMA credentials after passing the exam.

The ‘90 Day MA’ program requires a high school diploma or GED, proficiency in English (speaking, reading, writing), exemplary customer service skills, and modeling the Intermountain Health values of integrity, trust, excellence, accountability, mutual respect, and safety.

The ‘90 Day MA’ program is currently offered in the following locations:

  • Billings, MT
  • Denver, CO
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Salt Lake City, UT
