Medical Assistant Apprenticeship
with Associates in Family Medicine
Associates in Family Medicine doesn’t just look for qualified employees but builds them within our own communities. Our Medical Assistant Apprenticeship was one of the first of its kind to partner with an educational institution to offer both college credits and apprenticeship training.
Associates in Family Medicine partners with Front Range Community College – Larimer County Campus and Aims Community College.
During your Medical Assistant Apprenticeship with AFM, you should expect work-based and classroom learning, mentorship, industry-recognized credentials and most importantly, pay.

Getting to practice skills in a ‘real’ doctor’s office sounded like a great way to learn and gain new experience. I loved the hands-on aspect of the program. I was able to apply everything that I learned in a real-life setting. I am still continuing to learn new things, but the apprenticeship program was a great learning experience.

Moving from the apprenticeship to practicing independently felt seamless. I didn’t feel like there was a gap or missing pieces as I think I would have felt coming from a traditional program. I felt comfortable with the offices and staff, and I could focus on patient care easier because of this. I was allowed to learn little things during the comfort of my apprenticeship putting me in a more secure mindset moving into independent work.

I will always recommend this program to others! This opportunity was once in a lifetime and helped me tremendously with becoming a clinical staff member. From the layout of the program to the different clinics we were able to see, everyone was so welcoming and understanding that we were technically still “students” and helped throughout the process.
