Medical Administrative Assistant

James Madison University Outreach & Engagement has partnered with Career Step to help students train for a rewarding new career. Approved by the National Healthcareer Association, the Medical Administrative Assistant non-credit program is specifically designed to prepare students to earn the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) credential after graduation. The interactive online curriculum teaches students Microsoft Word and Excel basics, healthcare documentation and reimbursement, medical terminology, and basic anatomy as well as specific medical office management topics such as practice finances and standard office procedures. In addition to one-on-one support from experienced instructors throughout the course and access to personalized graduate support after graduation, students receive seven textbooks and a voucher to take that CMAA exam after graduation.

Students have 6 months to complete the non-credit program. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Certificate of Completion from James Madison University.
