Job Description:

Overview

CMAs are among the most critical and important professionals in the healthcare world. It is the CMA who works directly with patients to ensure their needs are being carefully met with every interaction.Every day you must have the patient as your number one focus as you work to coordinate compassionate patient care.To thrive in this role you must be able to think on your feet and remain calm in stressful situations so you can provide emotional support to patients and clinical support to physicians.
Responsibilities
As a clinic CMA, you communicate with patients and their caregivers, acting as a "clinical concierge" throughout their entire clinic experience to ensure a positive experience.
CMA's work closely with patients throughout the intake process to help doctors develop treatment plans and strategies.

Many of a CMA's duties involve providing direct support and assistance for the facility's doctors. A CMA may prepare equipment or other instruments for a doctor or assist with procedures during a patient's stay. This aspect of the role requires a CMA to rapidly shift between tasks and duties depending on where doctors need the most assistance.
Qualifications

Certifications: Active BLS (Basic Life Support) required within the first 6 weeks.
