With today's growing emphasis on team-based care and holistic treatment, the role of the medical assistant is expanding and increasing in importance. The ability to hire medical assistants trained to support exceptional team-based primary care is a challenge for practices. Health centers typically hire directly from the communities they serve and are often tasked with filling in the gaps of work-ready skills. These hiring challenges make it difficult to ensure that medical assistants have the skills necessary to perform in the team-based care setting.
Be a part of the transformation! The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA), created by Community Health Center, Inc. (Connecticut) and Salud Family Health Centers (Colorado), designed a rigorous transformation of care curriculum that teaches and trains medical assistants on the floors of the community health center. Join us to explore the benefits of becoming a NIMAA Host Clinic and teaching institution. Learn how your teams can gain skills and knowledge by hosting a NIMAA student.
