Medical Assisting – Diploma
What is a Medical Assistant?
Medical Assistants are trained in both administrative and clinical tasks that support physicians and other medical personnel. Qualified Medical Assistants are essential to the success of any healthcare facility. A certified Medical Assistant works with patients directly to ensure they receive proper care while providing health professionals with vital patient information.
How to become a Medical Assistant:
Aspiring Medical Assistants must successfully complete a Medical Assisting program at an accredited school such as Pioneer Pacific College. Pioneer’s Medical Assisting Diploma Program prepares students for an entry-level position in a physician’s office or medical clinic. The program emphasizes the development of clinical skills and administrative skills, equipping graduates for a variety of positions in the healthcare field.
We believe in learning by doing. That’s why our medical assistant training is hands-on and provides students with as much experience as possible, making the transition from school to a professional work environment a smooth one. Our Medical Assisting Diploma Program includes 180 hours of an on-the-job externship in a real healthcare setting.
Pioneer Pacific College offers day, evening, and weekend class options to students enrolling in our Medical Assisting – Diploma program at our Springfield, Wilsonville, and Beaverton* locations.

“The teachers are very inviting and they make you feel comfortable, are really outgoing and make it more fun to be in than other schools. We’re like one big family.“Jordann Seater, Medical Assisting Alumni
