AMT Celebrates Medical Assistants and their Vital Contributions to Healthcare

AMT celebrates Medical Assistants Recognition Week, October 17-21, 2022. We honor the integral work and care that RMAs provide to patients across the country and globe. Our members, employers and schools should take pride in their hard work and efforts throughout the year but especially during this week. 


Day in and day out, year after year, there is a group of dedicated professionals serving on the frontlines of health care. However, one week out of each year is named in appreciation of their contributions: Medical Assistants Recognition Week (MARWeek). This important event acknowledges medical assisting’s vital role in health care while raising awareness of the profession.

2022 is extra special for AMT, as it marks the 50th anniversary of our organization certifying RMAs! Be sure to thank an RMA for their efforts in healthcare, whether they are new to the field or have been around for 50.

AMT Executive Director, Kathy Cilia, CAE, recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of all AMT RMA members:


RMAs, their employers, and schools can all participate in this celebratory week full of activities and fun. Visit our website to download the special MA week logo, review the promo kit, print out social media signs and order branded products.

AMT encourages participation in MARWeek on our social media pages with promotional giveaway posts and featured RMA members.
