HEALTHCARE PATHWAYS

CERTIFIED CLINICAL MEDICAL ASSISTANT (CCMA)

Aztec’s Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) program prepares health care professionals for work with clinical procedures and patient care. CCMAs help doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals with basic healthcare tasks, such as monitoring vital signs or taking blood samples.

This program prepares students to take the National Healthcare Association certification exam.

Certified Clinical Medical Assistants are important members of healthcare teams and work in a wide variety of medical settings. CCMAs are often the last person a patient engages with during a medical visit, which can have a lasting impact on the patients they serve.
