Advance Your Career with NIMAA Training

May 5, 2022 by Mountain Family

Did you know that Mountain Family has a partnership with NIMAA to help train and employ medical assistants?

The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA) is a nonprofit education institute that trains medical assistants to work effectively in today’s high-performing primary care settings. NIMAA was created by community health centers to provide access to education and employment opportunities in the communities they serve, while addressing a critical workforce shortage.


The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement is structured with real people and clinics in mind. Our goal is to efficiently prepare our students to step confidently into a new career as an MA. Check out our flyer here.

8 Month Program

NIMAA combines online learning & instruction with in-clinic experience at Mountain Family Health Centers to prepare you to sit for the MA certification exam in only eight months.

Work in Your Clinic

We start you at Mountain Family Health Centers by getting you hands-on experience at the same time as you learn theory and core skills in your instruction.
