Cleveland State's Medical Assisting Program Meets CAAHEP Thresholds

Tuesday, August 14, 2012
The Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB) congratulated Cleveland State’s Medical Assisting program for meeting all of the thresholds for outcome assessment accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).             

The outcomes, mandated as part of the 2008 Standards and Guidelines for the Accreditation of Educational Programs in Medical Assisting, are monitored annually through the MAERB Annual Report. 

The outcomes were as follows: programmatic retention/attrition rate; positive job placement; graduate satisfaction success rate; graduate survey participation rate; employer satisfaction success rate; employer survey participation rate; and national credentialing success rate.

“Basically, the MAERB is congratulating our Medical Assisting program for meeting the retention, job placement, graduate survey, and employer survey outcome thresholds for the 2011-2012 academic year,” stated Karmon Kingsley, CMA (AAMA), Assistant Professor/Director, Medical Assistant Program. “Also, it means that we are producing quality medical assistants, that our graduates are passing their certification exam, which is the CMA (AAMA), and they are being hired!”             

Dr. Carl Hite, CSCC President, said, “This is a tribute to the hard work of the program director, Karmon Kingsley, who does an excellent job of keeping this program current. We know we have a great program, but it is a great validation when you meet or exceed the standards of a national accrediting agency. It is also an assurance to prospective students that they are entering a top-notch program.”
