Medical Administrative Assistant (MAST 100)

The Medical Administrative Assistant with EHR program is a completely online, self-paced program that will prepare students for national certification and also for employment in this rapidly growing healthcare field.

This program is designed to prepare students to earn the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) and Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist (CEHRS) credentials after graduation. The interractive online curriculum includes over 200 hours of training on the industry-standard exEMRx EHR software to ensure students are prepared for the workforce. Students also learn Microsoft Office basics, healthcare documentation and reimbursement, and medical office management topics such as practice finances and standard office procedures. In addition to one-on-one support from experienced instructors throughout the course and access to personalized graduate support after graduation, students receive twelve textbooks.

The program includes six months of online access from the date of activation and students can register anytime. With the average completion hours of 200, most students are able to complete the program in three or four months of part-time study (approximately 15-20 hours per week).

Upon completion of the program the student will be given vouchers to take the CMAA (offered through the National Healthcareer Association) AND the CEHRS (offered through the National Healthcareer Association) national certification exams. National certification is issued by third-party organizations and industry governing bodies. Additional information on these certifications can be found by contacting these agencies.
