Academic Institutions

We know that every academic institution’s goal resides in job placement. NCMA’s focus is to help you with clinical curriculum development and with mastering medical procedure skills for your graduates; making students feel that although they graduated, they can always count on their institution for guidance in their medical profession and continuing education. NCMA will give you control of your graduates and/or attending students by allowing your institution, through a designated liaison, to be the link in communication regarding all procedures of certification, application, payment, national requirements, refreshers, etc.; giving you the power to control who sits for an exam. Once your students pass both theory and clinical competency exams, their credential certification will be sent out to the designated liaison, which in turn will be the individual responsible in giving the certification to your students once all of your requirements have been met. Having an NCMA credential certification signifies that graduates are not just multiple choice exam proficient, but are also a clinical standards expert in their field.

The NCMA is also focused on keeping up with the latest improvements in guidelines, standards, and protocols to a national level. Our re-certification process consists of live seminars that provide continued education for graduates and educators, as well as an online component through the Medicare Learning Network, and valuable access to newsletters and blogs from subject matter experts in respective fields. The credential renewal process will benefit both the graduates and the institution; the NCMA required “90 hour refresher course”. This course is a requisite for re-certification in the event that a graduate’s credentials have been expired past the grace period of two months after the date of expiration.
