All ABHES and CAAHEP competencies are covered. The new edition maps to the latest CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines for Medical Assisting Educational programs and the ABHES Program Requirements and Curriculum. Comprehensive Medical Assisting: Administrative and Clinical Competencies provides more opportunity for critical thinking through case studies, critical thinking questions, scenarios, and features tying to both of Delmar's Medical Assisting DVD series.
