Medical Assistant Programs & Classes in North Carolina

The North Carolina Medical Board exists to regulate medicine and surgery for “the benefit and protection of the people of North Carolina.”  This 12 member board is appointed by the governor. Eight members are licensed doctors and the remaining four represent health care and the general public. They make little mention of medical assistants but do guide the practice of those they license.  Because the medical assistant works closely with the service team and the clients, this professional caregiver with excellent communication skills will find ample opportunities for career advancement and regular salary increases.

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).Look for this recognition when you are choosing the program that will prepare you as a medical assistant.
