“Learning and working right off the bat is what stood out most to me about this program. I was able to start making a difference in my community immediately. Previously I worked in the restaurant industry. Now, interacting with patients and making a difference, I am happy! I look forward to going to work and seeing what the next day will hold.”

“The Centura Medical Assistant Apprenticeship program was a great experience. The ACC instructors were very knowledgeable and invested in the students. I learned a lot in a short time. Working in the clinic was great. The clinic preceptors were very helpful and encouraging in helping me learn and practice my skills. I would highly recommend this program!”

“This program has meant a lot for me, as I want to eventually become a nurse. Since I have a CNA and now am an MA apprentice, this has helped tremendously. I highly recommend this program to anyone who works for Centura because it was an eye-opener for me.”

“My experience in the Medical Assistant Apprenticeship program was nothing but pleasure! The program taught me how to organize my day, find perfect life-work-school balance, concentrate, get things done in as little time as possible, and how to not give up. This MA apprenticeship should be implemented nationwide because it is a fantastic experience.”

“At the age of 58, I was displaced and began looking toward a new career. I learned more than I ever knew was possible in the Medical Apprentice program sponsored by HealthONE in conjunction with the Arapahoe County Workforce Center and Arapahoe Community College—a totally new field! Clinicals were interesting and fulfilling. My full-time position started during the pandemic.”
