We believe learning should be fun and utilize games like Bingo and Jeopardy as a review – NOT death by power point. EMTP’s educators bring years of experience to the classroom to prepare you for the healthcare field. We incorporate simulated patients and situations to provide a realistic learning environment for the students.  EMTP works with each student to ensure success. Our faculty utilizes a facilitated learning approach that uniquely accommodates different styles of learning, because we understand that all students learn differently. We invite you to take an medical assisting course that is ‘hands-on’ and loaded with action.
