Clinical Medical Assisting (CMA)

We are currently working on the fall 2023 CMA class schedule. The fall class starts in early September, but registration has been postponed to late June/early July. Please keep checking back here for more information.

Please view the Clinical Medical Assisting Class flyer for our current or upcoming class information.

Eden Area ROP’s lab-based Medical Assisting program prepares students to sit for the clinical portion of the California Clinical Medical Assisting exam and find work as a medical assistant.

Throughout our program, students study:

  • Human anatomy/physiology
  • Medical terminology
  • Pharmacology
  • Minor surgery methods
  • Medical records
  • Clinical skills (collecting and recording vital signs, preparing and giving injections and capillary puncture, EKGs, etc.)
  • Medical asepsis and infection control
  • Career prep and nutrition

Upon successful completion of our medical assisting program, students will also be certified CPR, AED, and First Aid responders.
