What Is A Clinical Medical Assistant?

A Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA) works with doctors and nurses to help care for patients. Since Medical Assistants are cross-trained in both clinical and administrative duties, they are crucial to any medical office.

For example, a CMA takes your vital signs during a physical (clinical). Then, they log that info in your records and file them (administrative).

Because of several factors, demand for CMAs is projected to grow in the coming years. That is why now is a better time than ever to get your foot in the door and start your medical career.

As a trained CMA you’ll spend your workday:

  • Taking vital signs;
  • Drawing blood samples;
  • Giving out meds;
  • Scheduling patients;
  • Filing records;
  • And much more.
