General Information on NIMAA:
The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA) trains Medical Assistants (MAs) to effectively participate in high-functioning, team-based primary care settings. NIMAA provides students an effective and affordable education that is both on-line and hands-on, introducing them to the exciting world of healthcare and paving the way to a career in primary care.
NIMAA’s key objectives include:
NIMAA accomplishes these objectives through its unique approach to education, training, and on-going development of medical assistants. This includes online didactic education, clinical experience, and collaborative and critical thinking skills, combined with a simultaneous 240-hour on-site, practice-based externship hosted in high performance primary care practices identified by NIMAA as “host clinics”. NIMAA establishes ongoing relationships with the partner host clinics and provides on-going mentoring, preceptor training, and practice consultation to ensure the NIMAA students receive appropriate training, education, and support. The NIMAA graduates will be recognized as premier medical assistants who have been trained to the highest standards and are ready to assume positions on primary care teams in any setting, but particularly in the settings of organizations focused on vulnerable and special populations.
General Description of Duties:
The NIMAA CEO drives the strategic, financial, and operational development of this non-profit start-up organization and as such, creates the culture, reputation, and standards for the organization. The position reports to the Board of Directors.
We are looking for an experienced leader to supervise and oversee all strategic and business aspects of NIMAA. The successful candidate will have expertise in developing a national organization, collaborating with foundations and institutional leaders, and creating a compelling narrative for individuals engaged at all levels of the operation.
