          Clinical medical assistants are skilled multitaskers who help maximize the healthcare team's productivity. Medical assistants enable a healthcare facility to operate more efficiently, which increases revenue and provides a positive experience for patients. For physicians, clinical medical assistants help manage the increasing complexities of practice management and patient care. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market for medical assistants will grow 16% through 2031, which is much faster than the average job. In this online medical assistant certification course, you will learn a broad range of skills that make medical assistants versatile and valuable, including medical terminology, medical law and ethics, HIPAA rules, scheduling systems, and the importance of certified clinical medical assistants as healthcare team members. You will also be prepared to perform duties from the front office to the back office. These duties include measuring vital signs, assisting with exams, performing laboratory testing, maintaining equipment and supplies, administering injections, obtaining blood specimens, scheduling appointments, registering patients, and answering and returning phone calls.

          You will also learn medical terms and their application as part of your medical assistant training. You will start by learning the origins of medical words and how to recognize prefixes and suffixes used in medical terminology. Then you will learn about the body as a whole and how to differentiate cells, tissues, organs, systems, and cavities. Next, you will learn to define and describe the function of each system of the human body. This knowledge will help you take the next step in your medical career or education. The online medical assistant certification course also includes the opportunity to become CPR certified and participate in an unpaid clinical experience. Because employers recognize that certified medical assistants deliver greater value, completing the course will help you to be well-prepared to find your place in this rewarding healthcare career. You will also be able to sit for the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).

          This CCMA certification course includes a voucher which covers the fee for the exam. However, please research your state's requirements by visiting your state's Medical Board site before enrolling to ensure this course is the right fit for you.
