Medical Assistants_LI

Gain the knowledge, skills, and certifications you need to become an Intermountain medical assistant in just six months with a paid skills pass-off day. The Path to Education, Advancement, and Knowledge (PEAK) program has a limited number of spots for those who want to start or continue their career as a medical assistant.

Eligibility for the program is simple: have a passion for patient care and be budgeted and scheduled to work at Intermountain for 20 or more hours per week. Watch this two-minute video to see what it’s like to be an medical assistant at Intermountain.

This training program begins in early July and is conducted online through the University of Memphis. Be prepared to dedicate 12 to 15 hours per week outside of work to complete courses. You won’t be paid for this portion of the program, but the cost of tuition and the textbook are fully covered by Intermountain. Once courses are complete, learners can participate in paid, hands-on skills pass-off sessions.

Successfully completing the program prepares you to sit for the National Health Career Association’s Certified Clinical Medical Assisting exam.

Applying only takes about 15-20 minutes and includes ten questions, with two questions requiring HireVue video responses. You’ll also need to attach your most current résumé. You must return your completed application by Friday, June 4. Click to get started with your application.
