Formerly known as Central Florida College, the school was merged into the Fortis family in April of 2010 and renamed. This technical secondary education college provides classes in the health care sector to train medical staff for the area’s community. Students commute to the campus, located in sunny Winter Park, Florida, and learn in classrooms with hands-on instruction. Associate degrees and diplomas can be earned here, and many recent graduates find job placement soon after classes are completed.


Although it is part of the Fortis system of schools that offers various health related programs, the Winter Park campus only offers classes in Medical Assisting. Students can earn an associate’s degree or a diploma, and the program educates students for an entry-level type of position in a medical office or clinic. Skills in office administration, operating computer programs that deal with patient information and scheduling, and even basic level clinical work are explored to give students the ability needed to succeed in this field.

All classes are conducted in the classroom, since hybrid and online learning is not available for this program.
