The high demand for Medical Assistants is projected to grow 23% through 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Become nationally certified as a Clinical Medical Assistant, helping physicians with procedures such as taking vital signs, preparing patients for medical procedures, and performing phlebotomy (blood drawing) and electrocardiography (EKG).
In order to take the national certification exam for Clinical Medical Assistant, you must successfully pass all five courses in this program. Take the courses in any order, or take them individually. LaGuardia’s CCMA program has had a 100% pass rate for students taking the national CCMA certification exams (National Health Career Association: EKG Technician, Phlebotomist, and CCMA) for the past four years.
