Griffin Health Partners with National Medical Assistant Training Program

By Alex Stackpole on 6/19/2018

Griffin Health, in Derby, is proud to announce it has joined with one of the nation’s most innovative training program for medical assistants, the National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA), to offer affordable, cutting-edge training to those seeking a career in health care. Applications are being accepted now for the class that will begin this September.

“Griffin is committed to improving the health of our community and providing a wide range of educational opportunities”, said Adam M. Dworkin, JD, MBA, Vice President of Operations for Executive for Griffin Faculty Physicians. “This program offers a rewarding career for graduates and a great starting point for those who want to pursue a clinical career in healthcare. We hope that many of our students will ultimately decide to work at Griffin following graduation.”

Central to the program is hands-on clinical experience at partner medical offices such as Griffin Faculty Physicians, combined with the latest online educational instruction, during a seven-month program. Each student works closely with a senior Medical Assistant preceptor to develop the skills and experience needed to work in a high functioning, patient-centered medical team.

NIMAA tuition, at $6,000 for 2018, offers an alternative to more expensive programs. With a 96 percent graduation rate and many students offered employment in the clinics where they undertook their clinical practice, this is an exciting opportunity to enter the growing field of health care.

“We are delighted that Griffin Health is partnering with us to provide this opportunity in Connecticut,” said Naveen Kanithi, Chief Executive Officer of NIMAA. “Students being able to practice their skills in first-rate clinics at the same time that we teach them online is an essential part of the unique NIMAA experience.”
