Clarkesville, GA – For the fourth consecutive year, North Georgia Technical College has earned the number one ranking as Best Medical Assistant Program in Georgia by the online resource Medical Assistant Advice.  

This recognition places NGTC at the top of 41 Medical Assisting programs in Georgia and considers graduation rate, tuition price, admission rate, retention rate, number of students enrolled and editorial staff ratings to determine the top programs.  

Medical Assistant Advice has served medical assisting students and professionals since 2012 and offers current information regarding education and career statistics to help guide students.  

“We are so honored to be selected as the #1 Medical Assisting Program in Georgia for the fourth year in a row by Medical Assistant Advice,” said NGTC Health Sciences Department Chair and Clarkesville and Currahee Medical Assisting Program Chair Stacie Bohannon. “All of the instructors are so proud of the students’ hard work and dedication and love teaching at North Georgia Technical College.”  

“North Georgia Technical College is very proud of our Medical Assisting students and faculty,” said NGTC Dean of Health Sciences and Personal Services Christy Bivins. “This is the fourth year the program has been recognized for this distinction and is a testament of the type of graduates North Georgia Technical College produces. Our faculty members are also graduates of NGTC’s Medical Assisting program, only emphasizing the tradition of excellence spanning over generations of students.”  

“North Georgia Technical College’s Medical Assisting classrooms and laboratories are equipped with the most current technology and teaching aids,” said NGTC Vice President of Academic Affairs Mindy Glander. “However, I strongly believe that the success of this program comes from our faculty. These ladies are exceptional educators and have a great deal of experience in the field. This experience and desire to see their students succeed is what puts our program in the lead for the fourth year in a row.”
