Certified Clinical Medical Assistant is a selective admissions program. Students must be accepted to the program before registering for any (CCMA) courses.
Rowan College requires all students accepted into the CCMA program to complete a criminal history background check (CHBC), a mandatory requirement of clinical agencies for patient care. Students denied the opportunity to participate in the clinical agency as a result of the CHBC will be dismissed from the (CCMA) program.
