Chris’s Answer

Hi Anastasia,

According to the American Association of Medical Assistants, the average salary of a full-time Medical Assistant holding a CMA was $17.23 per hour or $32,727 annually in 2018.

I found a great resource that breaks these numbers down by region and also provides some information on benefit packages that CMAs often receive from their employer. Check it out!

John’s Answer

It's hard to give an exact answer for a question like this. There are so many factors like the current job market, country/city you live in, and the exact medical specialty you'd be working in. I would suggest using a site like Glassdoor (https://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm). Sites like Glassdoor are basically an anonymous form of social media for professionals to discuss salaries and the workplace environment. Talking to someone who works as a CMA or doing a job shadow would also be a good way to get more information.

John recommends the following next steps:

Visit Glassdoor! (https://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm)
Search for your desired job; in this case, "CMA".
Read about other CMA's experiences and see salary ranges.
