Filling an informational gap in the system will help the state of Texas meet its growing demand for CMA's, publishes medicalassistantcertificationguide.org.
Linden, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2015 -- According to reports from the United States Department of Labor, the field of medical assisting is expecting a 29 percent increase in demand over the coming decade, making this the country's fastest growing sector. While a number of students express interest in pursuing this profession, the majority point out certain common hurdles going into the process. In response to this issue, Karen Rather of Medical Assistant Certification Guide has launched a new website geared toward providing state-specific information for Texas students.
Said Rather, "Medical assisting is an attractive and rewarding career path for several reasons. Not only do CMA's get to help people and provide support to the physicians under whom they work, but this field offers stability, job security and a favorable salary range. The problem is finding helpful information on exactly what's required for gaining Medical Assistant Certification In Texas since this varies by state. Most of the information available online is too generalized to really provide direction to those looking into the profession. Our website is designed to fill the gap."
Based on the Medical Assistant Certification Guide website, those acquiring certification in this sector are qualified to fill positions in an array of medical facilities, such as nursing homes, clinics, specialized practices and health departments. Duties typically performed include registering and recording vital signs, administering immunizations, acquiring blood samples, scheduling appointments, providing answers to patients' questions and updating medical records. State regulations dictate CMA's must receive certification through an accredited school prior to becoming employed with a health care facility.
Links to Dallas Medical Assistant Schools, as well as other educational institutions throughout the state, are provided on the company website. Some schools offer programs for specialized branches of medical assisting; these are listed along with each school's link and basic description. While investigating schools, potential students are also able to determine which core classes and medical courses will be required for certification.
Concluded Rather, "The state of Texas needs a continual stream of qualified personnel to fill the thousands of jobs to be available in the years to come. Although it's possible to land a position in the field straight out of high school, successfully completing one of the accredited San Antonio CMA Programs gives prospects a considerable advantage in this regard. We encourage anyone interested in pursuing a career as a CMA to visit our website for more in-depth information, and contact us with any additional questions they may have."
