MIDDLETOWN, Conn., September 11, 2017:
The nation’s most innovative training program for medical assistants began a new year of classes today in five states. Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, New Mexico and Pennsylvania will each have one or more host sites where aspiring medical assistants will begin intensive preparation for a career in primary healthcare.
NIMAA offers a unique and affordable approach to medical assistant training. Central to NIMAA is a parallel program of on line instruction developed and led by national experts, complemented by hands-on clinical experience in a host clinic throughout a seven-month curriculum. Each student works closely with a host clinic preceptor to develop the skills and experience needed to work in a high functioning, patient-centered medical team.
Mark Masselli, NIMAA Board Chairman and the Founder, President and CEO of Connecticut’s Community Health Center, Inc., said: “NIMAA represents the future of medical assistant training. Our program combines hands-on learning with on-line educational resources, connecting participants throughout the country using state-of-the-art technology. NIMAA graduates are prepared to work as part of a high-functioning primary care team immediately, and without the debt load students incur in other programs.”
NIMAA was inaugurated in 2016 in Colorado and Connecticut, and anticipates further expansion in 2018 as primary care clinics in more states enlist in the program.
