Medical Assistants (MAs) are valued members of the clinic care team. The MA role is fast‐paced, interesting, and patient safety guides every interaction. The MA is the first person to welcome a patient to the clinic and they set the stage for a comfortable, caring experience.
The Medical Assistant Apprenticeship training program is 11 weeks long. Class is held Monday through Friday from 7:45am to 4:15pm. In addition to classroom instruction, trainees can expect significant amount of homework and studying outside of the classroom. The course material is taught using a combination of classroom instruction, online activities, skills labs and shadowing.
Classes offered during the program include: Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Terminology, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, Introduction to Healthcare, Healthcare Professional Communications, Healthcare Customer Service Skills, Medical Assistant Standards & Practices, and Clinical Medical Assisting Lab.
At the conclusion of the 11-week classroom component, trainees sit for the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) Exam. Upon starting work in the clinic they will be enrolled in a 2000 hour Registered Apprenticeship with the US Department of Labor. The salary will increase from the training wage to $14.50 per hour, with increases based on competency development and performance at both the midpoint of the apprenticeship year (approx. 1,000 hours) and again at the conclusion of the apprenticeship (2,000 hours) up to $16.50 per hour.
