Welcome to My Survey

The Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB) is requesting feedback and information from the Program Directors (or their designated proxies) about the design and function of the required practicum in the CAAHEP-accredited medical assisting programs.  MAERB has been asked to provide the CAAHEP-accredited medical assisting programs with more guidelines about the practicum experience, and we would like to do so with a thorough knowledge of what is currently occurring within the programs, what questions you currently have about the practicum experience, and what you see changing within your local environments. 

The survey is optional, but we would greatly appreciate your feedback.  It is also anonymous, but you do have the opportunity to provide your name and contact information if you happen to have specific questions about the practicum experience.  Sarah Marino, Executive Director, MAERB, will be the only person who will have access to the individual responses, and she will respond by email or phone to any specific questions. 

She will then compile the information into a report, and the MAERB will be discussing it at their February 2017 meeting.  The discussion will focus on how to best provide the CAAHEP-accredited medical assisting programs with more guidelines about the practicum and resources to support the practicum experience. 

Based upon that discussion, the MAERB members and MAERB office will work during the spring to develop those guidelines and resources and the information will be shared with the MAERB Program Directors so that they can determine what will be most effective for them. 

In addition, we are adding in a few questions about the use of simulations, as we would like to learn more about what Program Directors are doing with simulations.

Thank you in advance for responding to this survey.  Your participation has a great impact.
