The Certification Commission is now offering Specialty Certified Medical Assistant™ (SCMA™) study guides in 13 different areas:
- Family Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Orthopedic Surgery
- Transplantation Surgery
- Women’s Health
Developed by physicians, teaching nurses, and other medical professionals, these study guides are designed to prepare candidates for the SCMA certification exams. Tiffany Kelley (Ph.D., MSN, MBA, RN) was the main developer for the study guides.
“When asked to develop study guides for the SCMA exams, I began to think about what the individual would need to independently prepare for the SCMA specialty exam,” said Dr. Kelley. "The study guides were designed to supplement the individual’s medical assistant training.”
The SCMA credential shows physicians, nurses, and patients the dedication a candidate has for a particular specialty. “Physicians and provider practices can feel confident that a medical assistant with a SCMA certification credential has the knowledge of the specialty practice area, the skills to execute delegated tasks, and most importantly, the critical thinking skills to be successful in assisting physicians and providers in their practice setting,” said Dr. Kelley.
A great asset to add to a resume, the credential can help advance a candidate's career and even increase their job security. The Certification Commission believes in providing exceptional customer service to their members, so they offer job placement assistance to individuals holding the SCMA credential.
“Using the study guides, individuals can feel confident in their preparation for the certification exam – and also confident in being prepared for a medical assistant position,” noted Dr. Kelley.
