Welcome to the Oregon Society of Medical Assistants website, your continuous online state website. We have recently made some changes and we hope you like what you see.
The Oregon Society of Medical Assistants (OSMA) is a professional support entity for medical office and ancillary healthcare personnel who perform clinical and administrative duties. We are an affiliate of the American Association of Medical Assistants(AAMA). Many of our members are Certified Medical Assistants, with the credential CMA (AAMA). “To better ensure continuing competency and knowledge and thus better protect patients, a CMA (AAMA) is required to recertify the credential every 60 months. Current status is required in order to use the CMA (AAMA) credential.”
To that purpose (or “for that reason” or “to that end”), OSMA promotes continuing education for all medical office personnel. For education information, please contact your local chapter by emailing:firstname.lastname@example.org.
