The purpose of the CMA Program is to prepare students for employment in a variety of clinical positions in the health care field. Graduates are prepared to work in various health care settings, including medical offices, nursing homes, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers. Employment opportunities exist as clinical medical assistants, EKG specialists, phlebotomists, and other related jobs. Five nationwide certifications are provided within this program: Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), Certified Phlebotomist Specialist (CPT), Certified EKG Specialist (CET), and Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), CPR and First Aid. Certification examinations are administered through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA), an international accreditation agency.
