Clinical Medical Assistant

Offered in Brenham and Bryan, Blinn’s Clinical Medical Assistant Program includes a curriculum designed and implemented based on nationally recognized training, assessment, and certification standards set forth by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).

Clinical medical assistants are medical support professionals who perform clinical and administrative duties under the direction of a physician. Clinical medical assistants perform a variety of job duties, including maintaining patient medical records, scheduling appointments, administering medications, collecting and preparing laboratory specimens, and recording vital signs.


Blinn’s 200-hour Clinical Medical Assistant Program consists of two online courses. The first course in the program introduces students to medical office operations, equipment, procedures, and how those apply in an ambulatory care setting. Students will then apply specialized theory, skills, and concepts in a virtual clinical setting. 

To enroll in the Clinical Medical Assistant Program, students must first participate in a mandatory online healthcare information session.
