Medical assistants across the country are recognized during Medical Assistants Recognition Week, celebrated October 18th through the 22nd. Medical Assistants Recognition Week offers an opportunity to recognize the contributions of medical assistants and CMAs (AAMA)® to the medical field. During the COVID-19 pandemic, medical assistants have worked on the front lines, and their heroic acts inspire the 2021 theme: “Not All Heroes Wear Capes.” This year, the American Association of Medical Assistants recognizes medical assistants as the heroes they are.

Medical Assistant Recognition Week

Medical assisting is an allied health profession whose practitioners function as members of the healthcare delivery team and perform administrative and clinical procedures. Medical assisting is one of the nation’s careers growing much faster than average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


We are proud to support this profession through our CAAHEP-accredited and AAMA-recognized medical assistant program. We thank all medical assistants, including our proud graduates and current medical assistant students, for all they do, each day, to provide quality patient care and administrative support in our healthcare system. Thank you, medical assistants!
