The Community Health Association Inland Southern Region has partnered with the National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA) to develop and establish a new medical assistant training program in the Inland Southern Region of California. Through the generous funding from Health Net, the Association is able to offer affordable, cutting-edge training to those seeking a career in health care. The medical assistant training program is currently recruiting candidates for the first class of new medical assistant students that will begin September 2018. Potential candidates, please apply here on the NIMAA website.
Central to the program is hands-on clinical experience at the Association’s membership clinics such as Central City Community Health Center (Riverside County) and Unicare Community Health Center (San Bernardino County), combined with the latest online educational instruction, during a seven-month program. Each student works closely with a senior Medical Assistant preceptor to develop the skills and experience needed to work in a high functioning, patient-centered medical team.
NIMAA tuition, at $6,000 for 2018 plus $660 for student fees, offers an alternative to more expensive programs. With a 96 percent graduation rate and many students offered employment in the clinics where they undertook their clinical practice, this is an exciting opportunity to enter the growing field of health care. The Community Health Association is providing an opportunity this year for financial support to the first 7 students accepted into the program.
