Medical assistants historically received on the job training and never had any formal training prior to being employed. Individuals that had completed a minimum level of secondary or high school education were usually selected by medical practitioners who required their services and “shown the ropes” so to speak. Most handled administrative work in the medical facilities that they worked in. More recently, the medical assistant’s task list has grown to include more technical or clinical work such as reviewing patient’s medical history, explaining medication to patients and sometimes administering injections.
In 1956, an association called the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) was formed and currently administers a test that once passed, gives the bearer a professional designation as a certified medical assistant or CMA. Another body that also registers and certifies medical assistants is the American Medical Technologists which awards a successful candidate as a registered medical assistant or RMA.
