The Medical Assistant Apprenticeship Program is a six-month program that prepares students to take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) test through the National Healthcareer Association. Apprentices will be hired by Centura Health as Medical Assistant apprentices while completing their medical assistant training through Arapahoe Community College. Once individuals have completed their training they will be hired on full-time at a Centura Health facility as a Medical Assistant.
Medical Assistants are allied health professionals who work alongside providers to perform both administrative and clinical duties in mostly outpatient care facilities. They are cross-trained for both front and back office duties such as answering telephones, greeting patients, and coding/billing insurance forms. They are a vital partner to the provider in the care of the patient. Back office responsibilities include taking medical histories, assisting in examinations and procedures, patient education, and performing or arranging a vast array of medical tests.
