Northwell Health Earn & Learn Medical Assistant Program in partnership with Nassau
Northwell Health and Nassau Community College (NCC) have formed a partnership to support Northwell
entry-level candidates and existing Northwell team members in jump-starting a career to
become a Medical Assistant. This cohort program is designed for any eligible candidates
to work as a Medical Associate at a designated Northwell site, while taking classes
at Nassau Community College under the Medical Assistant Certificate program for one
year. Northwell Health is providing a scholarship to Northwell Medical Associates
who participate in the Earn & Learn program.
Upon successful completion, the team member will be promoted to a Medical Assistant
position and commit to continuing their career journey at Northwell in this role for
a minimum of one year.
The Earn & Learn program is a paid, one-year training program for candidates who:
- Have earned a state-endorsed high school diploma or HSE/TASC (formerly GED certificate)
- Complete enrollment as a NCC student, including successful completion of NCC required placement exam (if applicable)
- Provide an employment commitment to work as a Medical Assistant at Northwell for at
least one year, post Medical Assistant certificate program completion
