MA UpSkilling

In fall of 2020, we initiated our MA UpSkilling program with 17 medical assistants from our member health centers. The goal of the MA UpSkilling program is to enhance the medical assistant’s skills, increase work satisfaction with the aim of decreasing turnover, and increasing an opportunity for advancement. This program is funded by HealthNet and in collaboration with CPCA, MacMan, and Medical Assistant+.
