Partnership Spotlight: NIMAA

Our newest partner, the National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA), provides affordable education with progressive learning techniques, taught by national primary care experts with externships hosted in some of the most innovative primary care centers in the country. NIMAA prepares you for working in integrated, team-based primary care centers.


NIMAA is a collaboration between two of the nation’s leading Federally Qualified Health Centers, Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) in Connecticut providing care to 145,000 patients and Salud Family Health Centers in Colorado, serving more than 70,000 patients.

At NIMAA, students learn from national leaders in primary health care, use the latest on-line teaching tools, while simultaneously participating in their externship in our partnership host clinics.

NIMAA graduates are prepared to work as effective members of the medical team in community health centers and other high-performing primary care organizations across the country.
