The AAMA Installs Jane B. Seelig, CMA-A (AAMA), as 2021-2023 Trustee

The American Association of Medical Assistants® installed Jane B. Seelig, CMA-A (AAMA), as a 2021-2023 AAMA Trustee in Houston, Texas, at the 65th AAMA Annual Conference. In this capacity, Seelig, a resident of Columbus, Indiana, represents medical assistants and CMAs (AAMA)® across the nation.
Medical assisting is one of the nation’s careers growing much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical assistants work in outpatient health care settings. Employers are seeking and recruiting these allied health professionals because of their uniquely diverse clinical and administrative patient-centered training.
“It is such an honor to serve the association and profession during this time of great change in the health care environment,” says Seelig. “The CMA (AAMA) plays an integral role on the health care delivery team because of their unique blend of knowledge, competence and versatility.”
Seelig brings a great deal of experience to her office. She retired from the Dermatology Center of Indiana after serving as a patient account representative for 15 years. During her career as a CMA-A (AAMA), she was employed in medical practices as a practice manager, patient account manager, patient account representative and medical practice consultant. She is the immediate past president of the Indiana Society of Medical Assistants and treasurer of the East Central District Chapter of Medical Assistants, and she recently served on the AAMA Membership Development Committee, Nominating Committee and Conference CE Sessions Task Force.
The Certified Medical Assistant (AAMA)® — or CMA (AAMA) — credential represents a medical assistant who has been credentialed through the Certifying Board of the AAMA. The Certifying Board was awarded accreditation by the International Accreditation Service under ISO/IEC Standard 17024:2012, the global benchmark for personnel certification bodies, thus distinguishing the CMA (AAMA) from all other medical assisting certifications.
A rigorous credential, the CMA (AAMA) is the only medical assisting certification that requires postsecondary (college-level) education to be eligible to sit for the CMA (AAMA) Certification Exam. The National Board of Medical Examiners — responsible for many national exams for physicians — constructs and administers the exam. As a result, the reliability and validity of the CMA (AAMA) credential are of the highest order.
Certification status is a matter of public record and may be released. Every day, the AAMA responds to more than 100 employer requests for CMA (AAMA) certification verification — for both current and potential employees.
The American Association of Medical Assistants®, the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the medical assisting profession, was established in 1956 and serves the interests of more than 92,000 medical assisting professionals. The American Association of Medical Assistants provides quality resources and educational opportunities for medical assistants by offering certification, advocacy for quality patient-centered health care, credential acknowledgment and scope-of-practice protection.
