The AAMA is the premier association dedicated exclusively to medical assistants. Members save money, get in the know, and meet people who are in the profession.
Protect Your Practice Rights | Your membership helps AAMA in-house legal counsel do the following:
- Fight for your right to practice as a medical assistant
- Answer your job-related legal questions
- Stay abreast of federal and state laws regarding medical assisting practice
- Partner with organizations to build a presence in the health care community
Get Your Credential Verified | The AAMA backs you up. Your employer can request verification of your CMA (AAMA) certification status, and we stand ready to respond. This service helps protect your employment future!
Build Your Prestige | Enhance professional credibility to peers and employers by affiliation with the AAMA.
Membership looks great on a résumé. It shows a level of seriousness about your chosen profession that is hard to convey in any other way.
Easy on Your Wallet | Membership goes easy on your tight budget. It’s less than what you often pay to go to about five movies a year.
CMA Today at Your Door | As a member, you’ll receive a complimentary subscription to CMA Today, an informative magazine devoted entirely to your profession. That’s a $60 value!
Flip through each issue (six per year) for CEU articles, medical assisting news, and health care information.
CMA (AAMA) Exam Discount | Invest in your future for less. You can apply for the prestigious CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Exam at the reduced member rate of $125. That’s a $125 savings off the nonmember rate of $250!
Note: Graduating students and recent graduates of medical assisting programs accredited by CAAHEP or ABHES qualify for the reduced rate.
CEU Options Abound | Stay on top of your field with continuing education. Take advantage of discounts:
View Your CEUs Daily | No paying; no waiting. As a member, your AAMA CEUs are registered and accessible online daily!
Discounts | Receive discounts on conference registration, workshop fees, self-study courses, and the e-Learning Center.
Plus, receive access to discounts on daily purchases and protection on big investments, like homes and cars from USAdvantage Plans.
Super Rates on Protection | Get special rates for personal accident and long-term care. Additional insurance benefits are available to AAMA members, such as life and accidental death and dismemberment.
AAMA Annual Conference | Attend the AAMA Conference and get on the path to professionalism. Go to informative CEU sessions. Talk with recognized leaders in your field. Get the latest on association happenings.
Plus, ponder this: Attending the conference will give you bragging rights at job interviews or your annual review!
Rub Elbows | Connect with colleagues at local and state programs and events. Meet a mentor for lunch. And, once you get home, shoot off a quick e-mail to the people you’ve met or heard speak at a session. Build lasting professional friendships.
Boost Your Job Leads | At least 60 percent of all jobs are found through networking, according to About.com. As a member of the AAMA, you’ll meet other medical assistants who are working in the field. Talk to them. Let them know if you’re looking for employment opportunities.
Volunteer Opportunities | Volunteer for association activities at all levels, and help shape the future of the profession. Maybe even consider taking a leadership role!
Volunteer activity also looks great on a résumé and can impress employers at job interviews or your annual review.
