Committed to the Service of Others.
Clinical medical assistants combine clinical and procedural knowledge, while working across the domain of health care providing aid for inpatient treatments and clinical operations. The CCMA’s are tasked with working directly with patients and supporting doctors, along with other health care professionals.
This program prepares students to be professional medical assistants dedicated to patient care management. Graduates are equipped to assist physicians with examinations and treatments, take medical histories, perform diagnostic tests, sterilize instruments and supplies, assist with minor surgery and administer medications. The program goal is to prepare competent entry-level medical assistants in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.
This program will prepare you to work as a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), designated by the National Healthcare Career Association (NHA).
