Become A Certified Medical Assistant

How To Become CertifiedJob Outlook for Certified Medical Assistant?
It is generally recognized that the average age of the population is increasing. This is partly due to a slowdown in birthrate and also the fact that better healthcare has improved longevity. The result is increased need for people to work in healthcare services, particularly elderly care services. Many of these services do not require a nurse or doctor, and you can find employment as a certified medical assistant. You will need training in order to handle patients and meet their needs safely. Most hospitals and community colleges can provide training as a medical assistant.

What Will I Learn as a Certified Medical Assistant?
Programs vary between colleges, but you will probably study courses in anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, word-processing, transcription, record keeping, accounting, and medical coding. On the practical side, you could learn laboratory techniques, clinical and diagnostic procedures, pharmaceutical principles, how to administer drugs, and first aid. You could also study clerical duties, patient relations, medical law, and ethics. Most accredited programs include practical experience in physicians’ offices, hospitals, or other healthcare facilities.

While your role as a medical assistant involves a mixture of clinical and clerical duties, the ratio of one to the other varies according to employer and state. Different states have different controls governing what medical assistants are allowed to do. The U.S. Department of Education accredits programs in medical assisting. There are currently two accredited educational agencies: the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
