Program Details

This 26-module online program covers the basics of clinical medical assisting to prepare you for the entry-level positions in healthcare settings like a clinic, physician's office, or urgent care facility.

First, we'll help you understand a clinical medical assistant's role as a part of a complete healthcare team. You'll also discover guidelines governing the appropriate management of a clinic and the legal and ethical requirements for delivering quality care. That includes patient confidentiality principles and HIPAA rules.

You'll learn how to evaluate patients' vital signs, prepare them for examination, and perform a variety of clinical procedures like electrocardiograms, blood draws, dressing changes, lab specimen collection and preparation, and more. Additionally, you'll learn how to apply the principles of effective communication and customize care to suit various populations.

This program includes a voucher for the CCMA exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association, as well as an online study guide and practice exams. Please note, in addition to completing a training program like ours, the NHA requires a high school diploma or the equivalent before you can sit for their exam.

If you intend to work in WA, AZ, NJ, or SD, please be aware that these states have additional requirements that this program certificate alone will not satisfy. You should always check local licensing or certification requirements when choosing an educational program.

Once you've earned 85% or higher on at least 50 hours of coursework, you have the option of a 180-hour unpaid clinical externship with a local healthcare provider. You must pass a background check and a drug screen to be eligible. Depending on the requirements of your externship site, you may also need to show proof of immunization, 2-step TB test, flu shot, and CPR certification. You're responsible for any associated fees.
