ACFAOM's Certified Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant Course
ACFAOM recently launched the
Certified Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant (CCPMA) course
. Partnering with Medinail Learning Center, ACFAOM now offers podiatric medical assistants the opportunity to learn important clinical background information about working with patients' feet, and bringing them to a higher level of clinical expertise so they can provide more clinical support to the doctor, such as nail debridement and routine foot care. The CCPMA provides proof, through the certification process, that the assistant has passed a course containing the professional information needed to work in a clinical assisting role in a podiatry office. This course consists of ten online learning modules with two online exams. After passing the exams, an internship in a licensed podiatrist's office is required and usually provided by the student’s employer podiatrist. On receiving verification that the student has had instruction on particular skills and finished the internship program, a certificate is awarded.
