Medical school prepares you to be a great doctor. What it doesn’t always teach you is how to run an efficient, sustainable medical practice. Yet how you run your practice can have an impact on the quality of care you’re able to provide your patients.
As a CMA member, you can take advantage of the resources and tools we’ve developed to round out your managerial skills and bring your best. We offer learning modules on everything from interviewing job candidates and managing staff to getting the most from your office space. We even provide a platform to help you recruit employees. And you can access expert advice on key matters like what to do if you encounter legal issues related to care.
