Thomson Delmar Learning?s Administrative Medical Assisting, Third Edition is part of a dynamic learning system that includes a textbook, workbook, interactive CD-ROM, and instructor support materials.

The book also emphasizes softer skills such as professionalism and practical skills, including how to comply with HIPAA regulations and handle privacy issues on the job.
