Soar to new heights with the NHSMA



The New Hampshire State Society of Medical Assistants is an organization dedicated to the education, promotion and support of all medical assistants. The organization is over 60 years old and has served to promote the profession and support patient care in New Hampshire.


The NHSMA is affiliated with the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA).The mission of the AAMA is to provide the medical assistant professional

with education, certification, credential acknowledgment, networking opportunities,

scope-of-practice protection, and advocacy for quality patient-centered health care

The AAMA, our parent organization, is the back bone the NHSMA was built upon.  Although the CMA (AAMA) is promoted as the "gold standard" of the medical assistant world we do advocate for and welcome ALL medical assistants into our organization.  You can become a member of the AAMA and this State chapter even if you do not have the CMA (AAMA) credential. Everyone is welcome! We have members from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and, of course, New Hampshire.  There are RMA (AMT)'s, CCMA's, and even a few LPN's in the NHSMA.  Many of our associate members are educators, office managers and coders. 

 Monthly board meetings are held to discuss the business of the NHSMA.  All medical assistants are invited to these meetings because everyone's opinion matters. However to hold a position on the board you must be a member of the AAMA.
