Healthcare in Hawaii is adjusting to changes in federal legislation opening many opportunities to the people of these islands. The Professional and Vocational Licensing section in the state of Hawaii does not have requirements for medical assistants who work under the supervision of physicians licensed in the state. These certified or registered medical assistants work closely with the health care service team and the clients, excellent communication skills will be essential for career advancement and regular salary increases.
When you have finished your chosen program, there are three possible routes that will support your accomplishment. The title certified medical assistant is awarded by the American Association of Medical Assistant (AAMA) while the title registered is given by the American Medical Technologists (AMT). Both of these groups are recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA). The National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT) requires continual in-service to maintain their national registration, which is not as well known as the other titles. Furthermore the AAMA has established curriculum requirements for education programs that guarantee that the student has every opportunity for success. Look for this recognition when you are choosing the program that will prepare you as a medical assistant.
