Pursue Medical Assisting Certification
Why should you pursue Medical Assisting Certification?
A medical assisting career can be as challenging as it is fulfilling. It’s a career that allows you to handle both clinical and administrative duties in a medical office. You can work with both doctors and patients to ensure greater health for your patients as well as ensuring the office is running smoothly.
At Elmira Business Institute, we offer a career-focused Medical Assisting degree program designed to teach you the technical skills and industry knowledge needed to be successful in this industry. As part of your training, we can work to prepare you for medical assisting certifications after you graduate.
Here a few reasons to get certified after graduation:
- Testament of your skill: If you’re good at something, you should have something to show for it. You’ve worked hard for your education and skills through training and hard work.
- Looks good on a resume: Getting certified shows you are dedicated to your craft.
- It might be mandatory: In some states, certification may be required to work in some units. Depending on your specialty, certification may be required.
- Monetary benefits: Employers want the best candidates possible and they are often willing to pay for the right person. Certifications look good and endorse your skills (see #1 and #2.)
