Overview

This new textbook uses a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to learning that truly reflects the real world in which MAs practice, whether they're focused on the front or back office. From beginning to end, it offers comprehensive, competency-based coverage, complemented by an emphasis on multiple learning styles to better meet the needs of your students.

Mastery of all the knowledge and skills that lead to CMA(AAMA) or RMA certification, plus flexibility, versatility, teamwork, and professionalism in the workplace, are the hallmarks of a successful and rewarding career as a Medical Assistant.

Our integrated front- and back-office approach provides the foundation for success…

Classroom building blocks—medical terminology, body structure and function, and pharmacology.

Lab and clinical—building skills through hands-on practice.

How it Works…

Integrated Approach – Teamwork based – Multiple Learning Styles

Unique approach helps students better understand how front-office duties affect back-office decisions, and vice versa.

Special focus on the attributes of a successful employee, need for teamwork and flexibility in the workplace, and importance of critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

Assessment exercises help students identify their own learning styles, and suggested study strategies for each style are included.

Organized into three main sections:

  • General/Transdisciplinary
  • Administrative

A step-by-step, chapter-by-chapter, body systems approach to clinical competencies that includes relevant examinations and procedures.
