            What Skills are Important for a CCMA?

Interpersonal Skills: Because CCMAs work with patients, doctors, and nurses, having excellent interpersonal and communication skills is very important. If you are someone who is friendly, compassionate, and helpful and wants to work in a medical setting, becoming a CCMA is a great option for you.

Attention to Detail: CCMAs are a vital part of a healthcare support team, and this includes administrative functions. The ability to be accurate and detail-oriented is vital to ensure patient information, treatment protocols, and diagnoses are accurately tracked and recorded.
