If you have considered or are considering a career in the medical field you most likely understand the basics of the field and what it includes, such as: medical assistant, clinical medical assistant (back office medical work), administrative medical assistant (front office medical work), and more.


It is important to note that those with Certifications are the most highly sought according to the AAMA. Employers often are not just paying higher wages for the CMA & AMA, they are also increasingly demanding that their medical assistants have a CMA and AMA credential. This is due in part to the overwhelming requests filed by employers for Certification verifications. This one is not hard to understand the reason for, it's all about one thing, pressure placed on employers, ie; Doctors’ offices, Hospitals, Emergency care providers, etc., for certification mandates due to potential malpractice suits. According to the AAMA, using the combination of both full- and part-time medical assistant respondents, 54 percent work in a single specialty practice, while 43 percent work in a multi-specialty setting.
