Clinical medical assistants are skilled multi-taskers who help to maximize the productivity of the healthcare team. To stand out in this high-demand field, you need a specialized skill set and certification. This National Healthcareer Association-certified course will train you for an entry-level position as clinical medical assistant and prepare you for the certification exam.
You will learn how medical law, ethics, and HIPAA rules factor into a clinical medical assistant's work. In addition, you will be trained to use scheduling systems, facilitate patient check-in and check-out, assess medical record, administer injections, and more. You will be also able to take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) national certification exam offered by National Healthcareer Association (NHA). This course includes a voucher which covers the fee of the exam. However, please research your state's requirements by visiting your state's Medical Board site prior to enrolling to ensure this course is the right fit for you. Please note, this course does not qualify students to work as Medical Assistants in Washington state. Upon completion of the course, you will also have the opportunity to gain access to our Externship Starter Kit.
Disclaimer: An externship with any organization is not guaranteed. All students must apply to the program and complete the prerequisite criteria before being accepted. Positions in the externship program are contingent on availability at each location. Students may also set up their own externship at any other retail or hospital facility. Additional hours will be required.
