BERKELEY COLLEGE GRADUATE FROM PARAMUS PASSES
CERTIFIED MEDICAL ASSISTANT EXAM

 

Oluwakemi Odusola of Paramus in Bergen County, NJ, recently passed the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) exam administered by the American Association of Medical Assistants. Ms. Alarcon 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.”
