My name is Dr. Hany Eissa. I'm the department chair of the associate of science in medical assisting at South University.

The Associate of Science in Medical Assisting is a two year degree that starts by a foundation of courses in general education such as math, english, psychology, and general study courses. Typically, medical assistants are trained to fit anywhere in the doctor's office. However, sometimes you have actually the chance to work in rural hospitals and also urgent care centers. Earning this degree is very important for anybody who is interested in the medical assistant field because there is high demand in the market for the profession at the time being. Also, South University equip the student with the necessary skills that will help them to achieve higher standards in that filed.

What I enjoy about South University is the professional work atmosphere. Also, I enjoy interacting with my students, I enjoy having them in the classroom, having them in my office, seeing them graduating from the school at the end of the two year journey.
