How to Become an Medical Administrative Assistant:
There are no formal education requirements for Medical Administrative Assistants, but most employers require at least a high school diploma for all new employees. Typically, certification is not required, and all new employees are trained on the job. However, there are certification programs offered. Boston Reed's medical assistant training is designed to prepare students for medical assistant certification.
Students interested in receiving certification should attend a school accredited by one of the two medical assistant accreditation bodies, the Accreditation Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Students with the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) designation must be re-certified every 60 months by completing continuing education hours. Boston Reed's Medical Administrative Assistant training is designed to prepare students to sit for the national medical assistant certification exam.
In 2011, the average annual salary for a medical assistant was approximately $30,000, or $14.50 per hour. Salaries can range from $20,000 to $40,000+. Wages will vary based on employer, location and experience.
This occupation is expected to grow 31% between 2010 and 2020.
