On the clerical side, this includes scheduling appointments, preparing and maintaining permanent records, arranging hospital admissions, typing reports, processing health insurance forms, ordering supplies, and keeping financial records. On the clinical side, a medical assistant may prepare patients for examinations, take vital signs, assist with first aid, and collect and process specimens. This program will give students the training and education they need for entry level jobs in the medical assisting profession. Upon completion of the certificate, students can take the CCMA/CMAA exam through the National Healthcareer Association to become a certified CMA.
