Clinical medical assistants are skilled multitaskers who help to maximize the productivity of the healthcare team. Medical assistants enable a healthcare facility to operate more efficiently, which increases revenue and provides a positive experience for patients.
In this course, you will learn medical terminology, medical law and ethics, HIPAA rules, scheduling systems, patient check-in and check-out, contents of a medical record, anatomy, pathophysiology, pharmacology, nutrition, phlebotomy theory, injections, and routine treatment and laboratory duties.
You will also learn medical terms and their application. You'll start by learning the origins of medical words and how to recognize prefixes and suffixes used in medical terminology. Then you'll learn about the body as a whole and how to differentiate cells, tissues, organs, systems, and cavities. Next, you'll learn to define and describe the function of each system of the human body. This knowledge will help you take the next step in your medical career or education.
You will be also able to take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) national certification exam offered by National Healthcareer Association (NHA). This course includes a voucher which covers the fee of the exam. However, please research your state's requirements by visiting your state's Medical Board site prior to enrolling to ensure this course is the right fit for you.
