BERKELEY COLLEGE GRADUATE FROM BOONTON PASSES
CERTIFIED MEDICAL ASSISTANT EXAM

 

Marissa R. Bernstein of Boonton in Morris County, NJ, recently passed the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) exam administered by the American Association of Medical Assistants. Ms. Bernstein is a graduate of the Medical Assistant program at Berkeley College.

“Medical Assistant students learn current industry practices and receive hands-on training with modern medical devices and technology,” said Gabriel Holder, MD, RMA, CCMA, CBCS, Chair, Medical Assistant program, Berkeley College School of Health Studies. “With certification, these professionals are prepared to work in a variety of healthcare settings, making them a vital part of any medical team.”

In addition to taking vital signs and preparing patients for, and assisting doctors with, patient examinations, Medical Assistants can collect and prepare laboratory specimens and perform basic laboratory tests on the premises.
